Challenge "Homophonic Encryption — Part 4" ¶
By: admin on May 8, 2019, 9:10 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 4 of this series we consider a distribution of the homophones based on English language statistics like in part 2, but the alphabet doesn't contain the blank. This is a ciphertext-only challenge. Try to crack the ciphertext and extract a specific word from the plaintext.
