Encryption - The codebreakers thread

Fri Jan 30, 2015 3:29 pm

I've though of an idea. Forum users can post encrypted strings below, give a hint or a word or two to how they are encrypted, and the rest of us have to decode it. Nothing like AES though, and you may want to rate it on the encryption level - from the Caesar Cipher to Enigma to AES?
Rules (in development) :
Every part of the code has to be part of the result.

(No clues. Old hands on the forum will probably have an idea what this is and what site to decrypt it.)

Oh alright I will give a clue - the above message was just a caesar cypher, as you said. Someone just needs to try all the numbers to get it. It would make a reasonable programming exercise actually.

(When it's been cracked, there is a large hidden pot of gold hiding under a... no, only kidding.)

Okay,
to be honest I used an online translater for the morse code and binary :oops:
I used online decoders for all of them. (including the reply you can't read, which is encoded in the same fashion as the 2nd message that it is a reply to).
Edit: Hmm, now I can't decode it, and I wrote it...

Oooops, I accidently decrypted the plain text reply. here's what it should have said:

Caesar was never much good at enciphering his text. A=I (rot8) deciphers that. I'll leave it for others to discover the plaintext.

"I crt yaehbonaieutdst "

I'll give you a hint:
the original is 19 letters long split into 6 words.
and spaces are included

And the secret to decoding the message is 0-5

Good Morning, it was a while since the last post. Why are you wasting your time reading this? There really isn't any point!

A basic substitution cipher? well played

A plaintext ASCII string is hardly encryption.
