Challenge "Homophonic Encryption — Part 2" ¶
By: admin on May 8, 2019, 11:05 p.m.
Homophonic encryption is a modified version of the monoalphabetic substitution: One plaintext symbol can be substituted by more than one ciphertext symbol. In part 2 of this series we consider a distribution of the homophones based on English language statistics. This is a ciphertext-only challenge. Try to crack the ciphertext and extract a specific word from the plaintext.
