A Cloaked Substitution Cipher — Part 2

[kallick-27] - 14 users already solved this challenge.
 
 
 

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 2, the plaintext is first divided into two parts, then each part will be encrypted separately.

A Cloaked Substitution Cipher — Part 1

[kallick-26] - 15 users already solved this challenge.
 
 
 

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.
