Cryptographic algorithms are important to ensure the security of data during transmission or storage. Many algorithms have been proposed based on various transformation and manipulation of data. One of which is using magic cube. However, the existing approaches are based on a transformation of magic cube’s face values. In this paper, we propose a new cryptographic algorithm based on combinations of hybrid magic cubes which are generated from a magic square and two orthogonal Latin squares. Using two random functions, i.e., random selection of thirteen magic cubes and random key selection from layers of hybrid, the generated chipertexts are free from any predicted pattern which might be used by cryptanalyst to decipher the original message.
