I’ll probably never get tired of writing blog posts about cryptography. It’s a puzzly skill with plenty of real-world applications. Heck, England hosts a yearly codebreaking challenge in order to identify people with topnotch cryptographic abilities in the hopes of recruiting them for government work! 417 more words

The sailors have harvested as much wood as they can from the corpse of la Santa Maria, and building has begun. It’s an awkward-looking square taking shape on the beach, just above the high-water line.
The Substitution Cipher
Perhaps the oldest and one of the simplest method of encrypting a message is to use the substitution cipher. What this cipher does is, as its name suggests, to simply substitute each character in the message with the character it is mapped to. 1,076 more words
I’ve been looking for a likely candidate to try out decrypting my potentially un-superenciphered Kryptos K4 strings.
Is it foursquare?
I don’t really know, it makes more sense than bifid (can’t use transposition) and more likely than playfair (insertion of null characters with doubles) plus it gives the chance to have 2 keywords and it’s a matrix based substitution cipher. 12 more words
