Later on, when you have the Caesar cipher decoder, you can unlock a new page. First, take the numbers 2 1 13 2 shown in the screenshot below. If you use the numbers to letters decoder, you get BAMB. Use the Caesar cipher decoder with shift 8 (the hint is R(8)) to get TSET. Reverse it (R) to get TEST.
If you look at the thumbnail of the level in the level select screen, you can see the numbers 16 12 1 14. I assume there will be a decoder later for this, but if you want to solve it now, just count the letters of the alphabet. So 16 = P, 12 = L, 1 = A, and 14 = N.
I reentered the two codes into 30, but I have 98.8% finished. The incomplete levels I have are 57 and 100 and a blank circle that is behind three icons after 57. Do you have the same icon/blank circle that is incomplete? If so, how do you have 100%, am I missing something?
hi . I got to level 1 NODE lights without ever getting any of those documents. I also answered the codes differently until the first binary where I translated Wait (all caps did nothing but Wait got me Node). entering illusion and node do nothing except show me the 2nd set of binary. again not when they all caps.4 of my 5 circles are full in terms of getting their computer connected. I just have mo idea what to do next.

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.
This code is for 2-player Bubble Bobble. If either player is out of lives, press START then SELECT, and the dead player will steal a life from the living player. Please note: This will not work while warping to the next level.
Cryptanalysis of the Lorenz cipher was the process that enabled the British to read high-level German army messages during World War II. The British Government Code and Cypher School (GC&CS) at Bletchley Park decrypted many communications between the Oberkommando der Wehrmacht (OKW, German High Command) in Berlin and their army commands throughout occupied Europe, some of which were signed "Adolf Hitler, Führer". These were intercepted non-Morse radio transmissions that had been enciphered by the Lorenz SZ teleprinter rotor stream cipher attachments. Decrypts of this traffic became an important source of "Ultra" intelligence, which contributed significantly to Allied victory.
For its high-level secret messages, the German armed services enciphered each character using various online Geheimschreiber (secret writer) stream cipher machines at both ends of a telegraph link using the 5-bit International Telegraphy Alphabet No. 2 (ITA2). These machines were subsequently discovered to be the Lorenz SZ (SZ for Schlüssel-Zusatz, meaning "cipher attachment") for the army, the Siemens and Halske T52 for the air force and the Siemens T43, which was little used and never broken by the Allies.
The speed of transmission of a radio-telegraph message was three or four times that of Morse code and a human listener could not interpret it. A standard teleprinter, however would produce the text of the message. The Lorenz cipher attachment changed the plaintext of the message into ciphertext that was uninterpretable to those without an identical machine identically set up. This was the challenge faced by the Bletchley Park codebreakers.
During the phase of the experimental transmissions, the indicator consisted of twelve German forenames, the initial letters of which indicated the position to which the operators turned the twelve wheels. As well as showing when two transmissions were fully in depth, it also allowed the identification of partial depths where two indicators differed only in one or two wheel positions. From October 1942 the indicator system changed to the sending operator transmitting the unenciphered letters QEP followed by a two digit number. This number was taken serially from a code book that had been issued to both operators and gave, for each QEP number, the settings of the twelve wheels. The books were replaced when they had been used up, but between replacements, complete depths could be identified by the re-use of a QEP number on a particular Tunny link.
It was deduced that the machine had twelve wheels and used a Vernam ciphering technique on message characters in the standard 5-bit ITA2 telegraph code. It did this by combining the plaintext characters with a stream of key characters using the XOR Boolean function to produce the ciphertext.
Colossus was developed for the "Newmanry", the section headed by the mathematician Max Newman that was responsible for machine methods against the twelve-rotor Lorenz SZ40/42 on-line teleprinter cipher machine (code-named Tunny, for tunafish). The Colossus design arose out of a prior project that produced a counting machine dubbed "Heath Robinson". Although it proved the concept of machine analysis for this part of the process, it was initially unreliable. The electro-mechanical parts were relatively slow and it was difficult to synchronise two looped paper tapes, one containing the enciphered message, and the other representing part of the keystream of the Lorenz machine, also the tapes tended to stretch when being read at up to 2000 characters per second.
The clue was found in the sublevel of the CSSSA campus in the form of graffiti on a wall. The graffiti shows a crudely drawn Bill Cipher and a series of hex codes that, when decoded, form co-ordinates: 37°49'19"N and 122°13'59"W. These co-ordinates are located in Piedmont, California, the hometown of Dipper, Mabel, and the Hirsch twins.
CipherHunters needed to find a pattern in the branches and knots of the trees that could be converted to pairs of numbers (the side each branch was in not being a factor). They also had to find out which specific version of the Polybius square was used to encode the message. Through clever cryptoanalysis of the branches and knots, and by manipulating the possible results with the assumption that the decoded message was a location that had to end with the letters "OR" (Oregon), a "reverse" code cracking method was used. The most likely resulting message was "REEDSPORTOR," so the fans were able to narrow down the location of the statue to Reedsport, Oregon. Alex Hirsch retweeted messages of fans that were heading there, reinforcing the assumption. The treasure map was assumed to be a map through the city's parks or surrounding forests to find the statue, so the fans searched in Google Maps for a path where the map fitted, locating one at the end of S 22nd Street.
The complete code was cracked later that evening (the message already presumed to be "REEDSPORTOR"): an upwards branch with needles means 1; a downwards branch with needles means 2; an upwards branch without needles means 3; a downwards branch without needles means 4; and a knot means 5. Read from top to bottom and from left to right, the resulting numbers, grouped in pairs, are "42-15-15-14-43-41-35-42-44-35-42." The Polybius square needed to decode the sequence and get the message "REEDSPORTOR" from those numbers is a 5x5 grid that combines the letters P and Q, with no key words. The first digit of each pair is the number of a line, and the second digit is the number of a column.
Most cryptographic methods we use now are computationally secure. There are lots of different ways to do this, and I'll just sketch at a few of them. We might come up with a reduction to a problem conjectured to be hard (eg the Diffie-Hellman Problem or Discrete Log Problem). That is, we prove that "If you can break my cipher, you can solve [hard-problem]", meaning our problem is at least a difficult to solve as [hard-problem]. So, if the problem is indeed hard to solve, so must cracking our encryption be.
This is the second time a Zodiac cipher has been cracked. The first, one long cipher sent in pieces to The Chronicle, San Francisco Examiner and Vallejo Times-Herald newspapers in 1969, was solved by a Salinas schoolteacher and his wife.
Oranchak detailed the process for cracking the cipher on his website and in a YouTube video, where he used a specifically developed decryption software and a bit of luck to finally make the connection. The team used a unique program to sift through 650,000 variations of the message. In one, a couple of words appeared.
So normally a soldering kit would give you reference markers for all of the components. What the hell fun is that? This is encoding, not encryption, it is a cipher we have created and you must crack it. This is a great opportunity to learn some new skillsets from our friends at the Crypto & Privacy Village (CPV) if cipher's aren't your thing (or try making friends in our Slack Channel). We have had the cipher tested by some of our CTF Hacker Fam and can confirm it is both solve-able qualitatively or quantitatively. That being said, it doesn't matter if you a left vs right brained kind of person, both paths can lead to success. Just so there is a common frame of reference, here are the cipher symbols in alphabetical order (note that this order is NOT a hint to solving it or indicative of the actual order of the cipher, I just need a way to list it out in the log and do not want to send you down the rabbit hole): 2b1af7f3a8
