Since I enjoy playing around with making different variations of encryption, as well as cryptanalysis, I thought I'd start a thread where people can
post a message they encrypted with some method (one that can be broken by hand, preferrably) and others can try to break it.
I'm not sure how many people here know much about cryptology or are even interested in it, but I hope at least a few are.
Here is a list of some
useful tools and reading material on the subject. I'll post more useful things as I find them (and I invite others to do so as well) but those are
some good basics.
- Army Field Manual on Basic Cryptanalysis
- Page of tools useful for cryptanalysis
- Letter Frequency Analysis Tool
- Letter Frequency Graphing Tool
Anyway, I'll start with a really, really simple one that should be really easy for someone to figure out even without most of those things posted
