Level 41 : Turn the original pattern into binary. You get: 01110011, 01101000, 01101001, 01100110, 01110100, 01101001, 01101110, 01100111. Answer: SHIFTINGLevel 43 : Count the dots in each line. You get 18 15 20 1 20 5. Use the numbers to alphabet decoder to get ROTATE.Level 44 : The hint is IRXU. Tap the button three times so it says 23 and the letters IRXU on the outer ring. That word is FOUR.Level 45 : It says QMRYW. You now have a new decoder, which is the Caesar cipher that allows you to shift letters over a certain number. Shift it 4 letters to get MINUS.
In cryptography, a Caesar cipher, also known as Caesar's cipher, the shift cipher, Caesar's code or Caesar shift, is one of the simplest and most widely known encryption techniques. It is a type of substitution cipher in which each letter in the plaintext is replaced by a letter some fixed number of positions down the alphabet. For example, with a left shift of 3, D would be replaced by A, E would become B, and so on. The method is named after Julius Caesar, who used it in his private correspondence.
Caesar ciphers can be found today in children's toys such as secret decoder rings. A Caesar shift of thirteen is also performed in the ROT13 algorithm, a simple method of obfuscating text widely found on Usenet and used to obscure text (such as joke punchlines and story spoilers), but not seriously used as a method of encryption.
In 2011, Rajib Karim was convicted in the United Kingdom of "terrorism offences" after using the Caesar cipher to communicate with Bangladeshi Islamic activists discussing plots to blow up British Airways planes or disrupt their IT networks. Although the parties had access to far better encryption techniques (Karim himself used PGP for data storage on computer disks), they chose to use their own scheme (implemented in Microsoft Excel), rejecting a more sophisticated code program called Mujahedeen Secrets "because 'kaffirs', or non-believers, know about it, so it must be less secure".
The two standards are both symmetric block ciphers, but AES is more mathematically efficient. The main benefit of AES lies in its key length options. The time required to crack an encryption algorithm is directly related to the length of the key used to secure the communication -- 128-bit, 192-bit or 256-bit keys. Therefore, AES is exponentially stronger than the 56-bit key of DES. AES encryption is also significantly faster, so it is ideal for applications, firmware and hardware that require low latency or high throughput.
Codebusters is an event in Division C for the 2023 season and was held as trial event at both the 2016 National Tournament and the 2018 National Tournament. It was going to be held as a trial event for Division B at the 2020 National Tournament before its cancellation. In this event, up to 3 participants must decode encrypted messages, or they may be required to encode messages with certain advanced ciphers. Competitors are not allowed to bring any resources to this event, but can bring a 4 or 5 function calculator - no scientific or graphing calculators allowed.
Using the alphabet square, encode the plaintext. The first message letter is S and the first key letter is S, therefore, look at the table to see where row S and column S intersect. It is clear that they intersect at K, so write down K as the first letter of the ciphertext. Repeat this with the rest of the message. Thus, the encrypted text is "KEQSYAW QTMXNACL WD AGQT"
If the key and ciphertext are both given, decoding is also possible. This is done by taking a letter of the key and finding its row, finding the corresponding letter of ciphertext in that row, and seeing what column that letter falls in. The letter in the column is the letter of the plaintext. In the previous example, the first letter is decoded by going to row S and finding K, which is located in column S. Thus, the plaintext letter is S.
To decode a message using this method, subtract instead of add the key's corresponding number: The cipher text K with the corresponding key letter S gives plain text [math]\displaystyle 10-18=-8\equiv18\pmod26\to \textS [/math].
The Baconian cipher replaces each letter of the plaintext with a 5 letter combination of 'A' and 'B'. This replacement is a binary form of encoding, in which 'A' may be considered as 0 and 'B' as 1. One variant of the Baconian Cipher uses a 24 letter alphabet with the letters 'I' and 'J' having the same code, as well as 'U' and 'V'.
Another variant of this cipher uses a unique code for each letter (26 letter alphabet). However, in a rule clarification, only the 24 letter variation is to be used on Codebusters tests for the 2019 season.
When solving a question encoded with the Baconian Cipher, it is very likely that they won't explicitly give you "A" and "B" to use to find the corresponding letters. Most of the time, they'll have certain symbols or letters that are meant to represent "A" and "B". One example of this would be using all of of the even letters in the alphabet to represent "A" while all the odd letters represent "B". There are many different variants of this, including symbols on a keyboard and vowel/consonants. To solve a Baconian, try to group the different symbols/letters into two groups based on their properties, and assign one group "A" and the other group "B". If it doesn't work the first time, then switch the groups so that the previous "A" group is now the "B" group. If even then it doesn't seem to be working, then start over again and find a different characteristic to base the groups off of. For this reason, the Baconian Cipher can take longer than some of the other ciphers.
The Morse ciphers are a pair of ciphers where you are given a long text of numbers, where each number corresponds to one or two Morse characters (dot, dash, or a separator). Some of these number values will be given while some will not. Using the properties of Morse code and logical thinking, you must find the decryption for all of the missing numbers.
In a Morbit cipher, each number corresponds to a pair of two Morse characters. Each pair of Morse character can only correspond to one number, meaning there are only nine possible decryptions. Whereas Pollux quotes cannot end with a separator, Morbit ciphers may or may not end with a separator. This is because each number has to correspond to two Morse characters, so an extra separator is added at the end if the quote in Morse code is an odd number of characters.
In the event that a question encoded with the running key cipher asks you to decode the phrase but does not give the key for it, then one has to use one of the documents given on the reference sheet (if applicable) and plug them all in to determine which of the documents is the key. If they give the key but do not give the text of the key (ex. "a famous quote by George Washington"), then it is probably best to skip the question.
The story of the three ciphertexts originates from an 1885 pamphlet called The Beale Papers, detailing treasure being buried by a man named Thomas J. Beale in a secret location in Bedford County, Virginia, in about 1820. Beale entrusted a box containing the encrypted messages to a local innkeeper named Robert Morriss and then disappeared, never to be seen again. According to the story, the innkeeper opened the box 23 years later, and then decades after that gave the three encrypted ciphertexts to a friend before he died. The friend then spent the next twenty years of his life trying to decode the messages, and was able to solve only one of them, which gave details of the treasure buried and the general location of the treasure. The unnamed friend then published all three ciphertexts in a pamphlet which was advertised for sale in the 1880s.
There has been considerable debate over whether the remaining two ciphertexts are real or hoaxes. An early researcher, Carl Hammer of Sperry UNIVAC, used supercomputers of the late 1960s to analyze the ciphers and found that while the ciphers were poorly encoded, the two undeciphered ones did not show the patterns one would expect of randomly chosen numbers and probably encoded an intelligible text. Other questions remain about the authenticity of the pamphlet's account. In the words of one researcher "To me, the pamphlet story has all the earmarks of a fake . . . [There was] no evidence save the word of the unknown author of the pamphlet that he ever had the papers."
There have been many attempts to break the remaining cipher(s). Most attempts have tried other historical texts as keys (e.g., Magna Carta, various books of the Bible, the U.S. Constitution, and the Virginia Royal Charter), assuming the ciphertexts were produced with some book cipher, but none have been recognized as successful to date. Breaking the cipher(s) may depend on random chance (as, for instance, stumbling upon a book key if the two remaining ciphertexts are actually book ciphers); so far, even the most skilled cryptanalysts who have attempted them have been defeated. Of course, Beale could have used a document that he had written himself for either or both of the remaining keys or either a document of his own or randomly selected characters for the third source, in either case rendering any further attempts to crack the codes useless.
