# Charlemagne Cipher

:

simple Number Substitution code: This code is very easy to solve. Each number stands for a letter.

Reverse Alphabet Code: In this code, each letter in the code stands for a different “real” letter. A stands for Z B stands for Y C stands for X etc.

Mary Queen of Scots Code:

Playfair Cipher: First a keyword is needed, for this example CHARLES will be used. Next, before encryption, alphabet are written in a 5x5 square, beginning with the keyword and I&J in a single element. C E G O V H A R S B D I/J K M P Q T W X Y L F N U Z

Now, the message is broken up into pairs of letters, of digraphs. The two letters in any digraph should be different, achieved in the following example by inserting an extra x between same letters. Plain text: meet me at hammersmith bridge tonight plain text in digraphs: me-et-me-at-ha-mx-me-rs-mi-th-br-id-ge-to-ni-gh-tx Encryption can now begin. All digraphs fall into one of three categories - both letters in same row, or same column, or neither. -1- same row: replaced by letter immediate right of each. MI becomes NK if one letter is at the end of row, it is replaced by letter at beginning; thus NI becomes GK. -2- both letters in same column: replaced by letter immediately beneath each. GE becomes OG if one letter is at bottom of column, replace by letter at top; thus VE becomes CG. -3- letters are neither in same row or column. To encipher the first letter, look along its row until you reach the column containing the second letter; the letter at this intersection then replaces the first letter. To encipher second letter, look along its row until your reach the column containing the first letter; the letter at this intersection replaces second letter. Hence, ME becomes GD, and ET becomes DO.

Data Shift Cipher: Pick a date (month / day / year) using a 0 in front of any single digits. Write out the date, without slash marks. Write out the message and then under write the date, continuously. Now shift each letter of the plaintext by number written under it. Using the “wrap around” continuous letters from Z go back to A, B,C etc. Example use 110466 (my birth date). Data Shift Ci pher 1 1 0 4 6 6 11 0 4 6 6 1 1 0 D=E A=B T=T A= D Data will then be EBTD

Decoding all that is needed is the key number. Write the key number under the letters and then reversing you can decode.

Substitute code: As an example: A D H I K V X M O R S U W Y Z L N E P P T

B G J C Q

With this code A=V and V=A and so on. This code can be arranged in any way desired. Half the letters on top and half on bottom, each letter is reversed with the other. Code would be MQXU.

A B C D E F G H I J etc. per row. one row at a time. Remember to skip the letters in you “codeword” when you finish the alphabet. using the code word (a word that doesn’t repeat letters) place each letter under the plain text alphabet. Example code word is newsboy. Block cipher = Bloc kcip her! From here you can re-write the code from left to right and from top to bottom. n e w s b o y a c d etc. Now. Once . Bkhlceoircp! Codeword Cipher: This code is based on a special code word. in plain text.J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z Jackass Kid Lamb Mouse Nut Owl Pig Quiver Rabbit Sheep Turkey Ute Victor Weasel Cross Yucca Zinc Tkele-cho-gi Klizzie-yazzi Dibeh-yazzi Na-as-tso-si Nesh-chee Ne-ahs-jsh Bi-sodih Ca-yeilth Gah Dibeh Than-zie No-do-ih A-keh-ki-glini Gloe-ih Al-an-as-dzoh Tsah-as-zih Besh-do-gliz Block Cipher: Write message in a rectangular block. Write out the alphabet.

A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q A = N and R S T UV WX Y Z N = A and so on.Reversed Alphabet: Just write out the letters from A to M. Example : = n B = e C = w etc. A Half .the entire alphabet is “coded” use the “code” of the plain text to leave a message. and write the letters from N to Z directly below them. Example: Half would be coded as : UNYS “Break This Code” = oernx guvf pbqr .

. Example: one back of a card = J a back and a 5 = 15 = O an Ace and back = 11 = K a 5 = E a back and an 8 = 18 = R. So that = JOKER.Hiding among the Diamonds: Using a deck of cards you can leave messages. Aces = 1 Back of a card = 10 and the number cards = their number. By looking at the numerals and adding them sum will create a letter from the alphabet.

Using a drawing of a skyscraper you can use the three symbols as a line down = 1.5 and 10. Using various combinations to create a number from 1-26 will be a letter. .Skyscraper: Using any number to equal a letter. Using three symbols to equal 1. a color box for 5 and another color box for 10. Making them “windows” in the skyscraper you can create letters.

.Moth Codes: Using morse code you can place them on wings of moth’s to send a code.

A pre constructed ruler using alphabet can indicate letter. Arranging the four colors in various orders creates letters. Yellow (or any other colors or symbols) Another example: [ ] { } in various orders. This also works as far as page. []{} = A []}{ = B ][{} = C and so on to create 24 various letters can combine I/J and Y/Z to form a full alphabetical code. paragraph and word or letter. From a computer you can use the ruler bar to indicate letter position.Word .Color Dot Code: Four colors give you 24 patterns. Or use clouds or any objects. As well you can use dots on a letter or picture or these dots could be small bees or butterflys. a newspaper or book of some kind. Using any four symbols in various orders. word or letter. i. Each triple set of numbers represent a paragraph. Green. Picture / Dot Messages: Creating pictures to indicate dots and dashes to make morse code. depending on were object is located. etc. Example is black birds. .Letter: This type of code refers to a specific piece of text. Small birds are dots and larger one’s being dashes. it’s the position not the letter that indicates letter. Paragraph . Second is the word and the third is the letter. First number is the paragraph. (Every other mark =’s a letter) Just place a letter or symbol at that position. Colored dots: Red.e. Blue.

is the letters of the first line.1590 Columnar Transposition: First pick an eight (8) letter key word ( or one as long as there are rows) example will be using “Diplomat” Making an eight row grid 4 lines down you write message diplomat microfil mnillbea rriving b ycourier The message : “microfilm will be arriving by courier” Now. A= 1. The fourth line is only a mislead. arranging the grouped letters in their proper places. L= 12. as does the third set of numbers and third line. Ex. D= 4. etc. (Coded word: Classified) Cider Sale Sifted Flour I have seeds Full service old time feed store Call: 1 (876) 127-1590 To add additional letters you can us a 800 or 900. The last line is the phone number. As ex. P= 16. Once you have completed the letters the message will appear. until the whole message is coded. under the key word. Deciphering the Columnar Knowing the keyword write out the keyword and below each letter write the letters that align with them. below the key word “diplomat” write the corresponding number as were the letter comes in the alphabet. The next three numbers decodes the second line. Now create a fourth line that is a Nul line. T=20 Using the order of letters A-Z write the letters from that row. Create a three line “ad” (this is were the message is hidden). . Knowing the key word you then go from A to Z in order. The area code.Classified Code: Used like (or as) a want ad in a newspaper. A(1)= iege D(4)= mmry. I= 9. 1 800 (876) 127 . in parentheses. M= 13. O= 15.. which is the Key to the code. EX. Zero (0) in a telephone number signals the end of a coded message.

but for these examples we will not be using a mixed alphabet cube. 311 213 213 311 112 332 212 111 121 213 212 211 132 The cube is used again to convert the numbers back into letters which gives us our cihertext. As with the Bifid Cipher. We will be writing the numbers vertically below the message in the order of Layer. you first convert each letter into its corresponding number via the cube.Trifid Cipher: The Trifid Cipher is the Bifid Cipher taken to one more dimension. Layer 1 1 2 3 1 2 3 a b c d e f g h i 1 2 3 Layer 2 1 2 3 j k l mn o pq r 1 2 3 Layer 3 1 2 3 s t u vw x yz . Now. Secret Message 311213 2133111 123322 1211112 121321 2211132 The numbers are then read off horizontally and grouped into triplets. Sppsdxmabpmjf To decipher a Trifid encrypted message. the cube can be mixed to add an extra layer of protection. Step one is to use the cube to convert the letters into numbers. Column. Row. read off each column and use the cube to convert the three numbers into the plaintext letter. Otherwise everything else remains the same. Now divide the long string of numbers into three equal rows. you use a 3x3x3 cube. Instead of using a 5x5 Polybius Square.

W hen a student thinks he or she has figured it out. fill in other letters between the letters of your message so that they form other words. Students will find the first letter of your last name in the left column and then find the corresponding code-letter in the column labeled with the num ber 1. For the sec ond letter of your last nam e. find that letter in the left column and write the corresponding code-letter found in the column labeled with the number 3…and so on. To read the message. Give students 5 to 10 minutes to try to find the pattern. (To mak e an easy job of correcting students' work. have that student use the code to write your last name. For the third letter of your last name. Jefferson Cipher: Have students use the coded message at the bottom of the cipher ("The m an whose mind on virtue bent. The code is fairly straightforward. students will find that letter in the left column and write the corresponding code-letter found in the column labeled with the number 2. (See the picture above. The letters of the alphabet read down the cipher chart. your friend places a ruler under the line of words. Then. The words shouldn't have anything to do with the real message.) Circle the last letter of your message. with the circle letter over an inch or a half-inch mark and copies off the letters at each inch and half-inch interval.Inch Word: Lay the ruler across the paper.") to try to figure out the pattern. placing each letter above the inch and the half-inch marks on the ruler.. Print your message in capital letters. . you will have figured out in advance the coded spelling of your last name.) Then let them work at coding their own names.. to confuse snoopers.

T is the second most common. so it represents A. so it is B. E is the most common letter. A B C D E F G H I J E T A O N R I S H D .Frequency: This code is based on the frequency of each letter.

knowing what your enemy is planning helps you to prepare. Because you know that those three letters represent a real dog. It is the mission of the NATIONAL SECURITY AGENCY (NSA) and the CENTRAL SECURITY SERVICE (CSS) to learn what it can about its potential enemies and to protect America's government communications. Secrets that were kept and secrets that were not. But it is also important that your enemies do not know what you have planned. O. What Are Codes? Although most people think of codes as being secret messages. world events have changed because of secret messages. how to make secret ciphers.

Throughout history. Any word could be considered a codeword. you understand the code! . something else. codes are really any symbol or signal used to represent. learn about the differences between codes and ciphers. and what to look for when trying to break a cipher. G. or communicate. In the world of diplomacy.

In the world of cryptology. however.1.1.2.2. column or paragraph number.1.24 CAN = 178. and the Nth word down that column or into that paragraph. Separate the numbers by a period. they need the key! If your friends have the key.which makes them great for sending secret messages! DIRECTIONS: Use a dictionary or any book with a lot of different words. Repeat Steps 2-4 for every word in your sentence. 4.1. Find the first word in your dictionary or book.1.2 887. 24th word down.2D 7. How well you've created your code and key will determine how long your message stays a secret from others.2D 778. CODED = 239.16 CODED = 239.24 178." Example: YOU CAN CREATE YOUR OWN CODED MESSAGE. 2.35 CREATE = 293.35 293. in order for your friends to understand the coded message. YOU = 1454.Sometimes.24 5.

In some cases.2.2.16 239. CONGRATULATIONS! You have created your very first code! What is a Cipher? .2. They can be quite confusing to anyone who doesn't know the system . The finished cipher should look like the cipher below. your messages become secret.2. you may have to add a prefix or suffix to the numbers. YOU=1454. codes are used to make messages secret by changing the words into something else.20 6. and your enemies do not.

the word CRYPTOGRAPHY might look like this: DOHQMRZOFQYH. In our example. and so on. In our substitution cipher. Another cipher. we will use the word MAPLE for our key. A NULL is usually represented by the letter X. they must know your system. For example. In our example. Step 4 Rewrite the columns so that the letters in your Key word are in alphabetical order. called a TRANSPOSITION CIPHER. then it is very difficult for others to read your message. It involves changing the letters of your message into something else: other letters.).A cipher is a way to make a word or message secret by changing or rearranging the letters in the message. Step 3 Fill in the columns by writing your PLAINTEXT message one letter at a time. the word MAPLE will be rearranged to read AELMP. numbers. (A code affects the word. the SUBSTITUTION CIPHER. Step 2 Write the Key word on a piece of paper. For your friends to understand the message. draw a column under each letter of the Key word. Next. CHYPRAGTOPRY can be unscrambled to reveal the word CRYPTOGRAPHY.) One type of cipher. or symbols. Y=H. If only you and your friend have the key. Make A Cipher: The Key How to Encrypt a Key Cipher Step 1 Choose a word to be your KEY word. etc. your friend would need to know the KEY. Using a substitution cipher. or how the system is set up (a=f. not the individual letters. In this example C=D. Make sure the word you select has at least five or six letters in it and has no repeating letters. is a bit harder. Leave a little bit of space between each letter as you write down each letter of your Key. is created by simply rearranging the letters in the word itself. Any empty spaces should be filled in with a NULL. Step 5 . R=O. For example the word APPLE will not work with this cipher because there are two P's in the word.

but DO NOT include the letters in the Key word. CONGRATULATIONS! You have successfully deciphered a KEY CIPHER! . Step 2 Starting under the letter A and writing from left to right. Step 3 Once the grid is filled in. Reading from left to right. CONGRATULATIONS! You have successfully created a KEY CIPHER! How to Decrypt a Key Cipher Step 1 Find out what the KEY word is from the person who sent you the message. you should be able to see the plaintext message. fill in the grid with the letters from the ciphertext. Draw a column under each letter of the Key word. copy the letters in each column from top to bottom. rearrange the columns so the Key word is spelled out correctly.To see your encrypted message. Write the letters from the Key word in alphabetical order on a piece of paper.

They are not. in this order “” . several groups of frequency numbers appear to be identical. Since no fractions are used. -1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12-13-14-15-16-17-18-19-20-21-22-23-24-25-26E T A O N R I S H D L F C M U G Y P W B V K X J Q Z 13 10 08 08 07 07 06 06 05 04 03 03 03 03 02 02 02 02 less than two.Solving Cryptograms: Approximate number of times this letter occurs in 100 letters. Each letter occurs less often than the letter above it.

T.Most common letters in the English language is E. Nulls should not spell anything. helps keep things straight or in a grid. Don’t use an under sheet that can retain the impression of your writing. Now you have a three letter word that begins with T and ends with E using the frequencies chart the word is most likely THE. A. T is the 2nd most frequently used letter. Don’t use spaces or punctuation. I. NULLS can be used in any cipher. . and L is the second most common letter. Knowing that B was the most used letter B is probably E. When breaking a cryptogram count how many times each letter is used. Use lined or graph paper. H. meaningless letters to pad out the 5 letter words. The second most used letter is L and knowing that T is the second most used letter it is likely that L = T. Hide ciphers and codes in normal seaming letters and notes. S. The nine most frequent letters used are: E. as example. Destroy waste paper carefully Combine several types of codes together to create ciphers. You have a word LKB. Copy cipher onto another piece of paper or photo copy it. Example: after you have used a frequency chart you have found that B is the most common letter in the cryptogram. N. of five (5). Use pen for message and pencil to decode. Creative ways to help hide ciphers: Arrange “words” into groups. R. Make a frequency table. Using a table of frequencies. The average length of a word in the English language is 4 or 5 letters. Add Null to words. O. you can guess many of the letters. list all symbols or letters and keep track of amount of times tey occur in coded message.
