The third ENIGMA M4 message

[hoerenberg-01] - 0 users already solved this challenge.
 
 
 

In 2006 the distributed "M4 Message Breaking Project" under the lead of Stefan Krah aimed at decrypting three ENIGMA M4 messages from the time of World War II. Two of the three messages where decrypted within the first weeks. However, the third message withstood despite all efforts and remained unbroken.

Today, the M4 project has been discontinued with the last message still unbroken. The task of this challenge is to break this very last message - after all, a few years have past since the project was discontinued and cryptanalysis and computational power also advanced during this time.

Note: The solution was published here: http://www.enigma.hoerenberg.com/. You can't get points for solving it any more, but you can still use it as a good training experience.

Double Column Transposition

[schmeh-03] - 2 users already solved this challenge.
 
 
 

The double columnar transposition is considered one of the best manual encryption systems. Many secret organizations have made use of it or still use it today. As there are only a few publications on this method, it is not clear if and how a well-constructed double transposition cipher can be broken.

Beale Ciphers

[schmeh-04] - 1 user already solved this challenge.
 
 
 

In 1885, the US businessman James Ward published a booklet about an allegedly true story of a hidden treasure. According to the story, in 1823, a man named Thomas Beale hid several tons of gold and silver in a secret place and described the location of it in three encrypted messages. One of these messages was cracked, but it doesn't contain enough information to locate the treasure.

The two other messages are unsolved.

Ku Klux Klan

[schmeh-06] - 36 users already solved this challenge.
 
 
 

In 1923, a member of the Ku Klux Klan sent an encrypted telegram to one of his colleagues. This telegram could be preserved.

More than 60 years later, the US mathematician Cipher Deavours examined the telegram and was able to decipher it. In 1989, he published some of the details about the solution in the magazine Cryptologia („A Ku Klux Klan Cipher“, edition 3/1989). However, he didn‘t tell the complete solution – the last part was left to the reader as an exercise.

D'Agapeyeff

[schmeh-02] - 0 users already solved this challenge.
 
 
 

In 1939, the Russian-born Briton Alexander D'Agapeyeff published a book named "Codes and Ciphers". This book contains a ciphertext that was meant as an exercise. So far, nobody has been able to decrypt this ciphertext. In later editions of his book, this exercise was omitted – possibly because he had forgotten the solution himself. D'Agapeyeff may have made a mistake during the encryption procedure, which makes it now difficult to find the cleartext.
