A Cloaked Substitution Cipher — Part 1 Level 2

by Bruce Kallick, published on 8/21/2019

Like the MONOALPHABETIC SUBSTITUTION WITH CAMOUFLAGE series of challenges, this two-part challenge considers a modification of the classic simple substitution cipher achieved by randomly introducing decoy characters into the ciphertext in encryption which are then ignored in decryption. In part 1, the cipher uses a key which devides the ciphertext alphabet into signal characters and noise characters.
