Mason code is not secret anymore for the NSA.
www.nsa.gov...

After the decryption of the Folger cipher it turns out that:
Mr. Robert Folger turned out to be Dr. Robert Benjamin Folger.
Born in Hudson, New York in 1803, Robert Benjamin Folger was educated
as a physician, and became an M.D. in 1824.

The same year, he was initiated into a
Masonic lodge in New York City. Two years
later, at age 23, he composed the cipher
which is the subject of this article. The
cipher was written in manuscript form in two
little notebooks. One of the notebooks is now
in the possession of Macoy Publishing Company
of Richmond, Virginia; the other is said
to be part of a private estate.

Dr. Folger was quite active in various
Masonic orders, having been elected Master
of his Lodge at least five times.

Between 1837 and 1857, he gained notoriety among Masons
as a leader of several schismatic factions of
Masonry which had broken off from the
Grand Lodge. He also served as a member of
the New York legislature for part of this
period. In 1857 he was reinstated to membership
in the regular Grand Lodge of New
York and later authored a work entitled
Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry
in Thirty Three Degrees, first published
in 1862. He died in 1892.

Maybe this is also the key to Shakespeare.

Interesting that this would be of concern to the NSA (even though the deciphered text doesnt reveal anything unusual).

Not sure what your try to say. It's pretty easy to crack codes if you know what the document says. Unfortunately, simple internet searches will reveal that the rituals are already not so secret.

The NSA person who decrypted the Folger cipher is:
- S. Brent Morris
On the last page of next link his background is published.
mn-masons.org...

Now it is clear that this NSA person is a mason himself.

I would wager that the masonic code was cracked A LONG time ago by the NSA.

Their just trying to scare the bejeesuz out of people by implying no-one is out of their reach, not even secret societies....wooooooooooo.....

Edit: Dang, no reptillian proof goodies....

Not only was Brent Morris (who is a 33rd Degree Scottish Rite Mason) the one who first published the Folger Manuscript, the NSA's bogus claim about having "cracked" this code came ONLY after the Supreme Council of the Ancient & Accepted Scottish Rite offered this book for sale. Looks like the NSA knows how to use the internet and a credit card.

[edit to add] Not only was Morris the one who broke the code, he first published the Folger Manuscript in 1992, through The Masonic Book Club.

Here is an address Brent gave in 1999 regarding the Folger MS.

Robert Morris wrote the function CRYPT on UNIX systems.
en.wikipedia.org...(cryptographer)

Does this also mean that NSA can decrypt this

Why would the NSA care? You can find the ritual written out in English at a local book store.

i think Duncan's Ritual is one of the ritual books that has it all written out, or on the internet of course.

Almost ervyone care.
Windows contains the NSAKEY.
en.wikipedia.org...
That is one of the reasons that nobody uses Windows for secure environments.

For secure environments in most cases UNIX is used.
Now since mason Robert Morris has desgined the CRYPT function for UNIX, that means that NSA also knows how to DECRYPT passwords on UNIX.

That's nice and all, but Robert H. Morris who wrote CRYPT is not S. Brent Morris who published the Folger code. There's no indication that Robert Morris, who did work at the NSA, has ever been a Mason. Please don't unnecessarily confuse the two.
