# The Crypts

Jackie Chiang, Nicole Kuznia, Samir Navik, Jessie Wellnitz

After watching the movie pi, we became infatuated with the concept of the golden section. We decided to use a spiral as the overall key and structure of our code. This type of code is easy to decrypt with the key but extremely arduous and perplexing to decrypt without. Though the idea is quite simple, the explanation is somewhat complex and tedious. The basis to breaking most alphabetic codes is finding the letter most used and to substitute this with the letter e. In our particular code, we attempted to fool the code breakers by using a passage that did not use the letter e most frequently. We found this type of passage in ěLife: A User's Manualî by Georges Perec. The library had three copies, two written in English and one in French. We hid two of the copies and successfully stole the other. These techniques of sabotage were employed to make sure that our overly deceitful classmates did not hack into the library's computer system and discover our book of choice. Also, our beautiful fellow group member, Nicole, attempted to seduce two enemy group members (who shall remain nameless) while they were inebriated. Unfortunately, she was unsuccessful in finding any information. Also, the day the class watched the Navajo film, Samir stayed behind in order to hear Neil's group discuss their code in the media center of the library. When he discovered the door was too thick and opened it slightly, they saw him and quickly stopped the conversation.

### OUR CODE

Every part of our code relates to the word SPIRAL. We first encrypted our code by substituting the letters of the alphabet with different letters of the alphabet. We started out the substitution using the word SPIRAL and then filled in each additional letter of the alphabet. Substituting the letter S from the word spiral and the letter S in the alphabet was the starting point.

S T U V W X Y Z A B C D E F G H I J K
S P I R A L B C D E F G H J K M N O Q

L M N O P Q R
T U V W X Y Z

We next grouped all the letters of each individual paragraph, making the passage seem like four long words. Then, we separated each paragraph into lines of 34 characters each. To find the amount of characters in each line, we took the word SPIRAL and substituted the letters for the appropriate numbers.

S T U V W X Y Z A B C D E F G H I J K
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19
L M N O P Q R
20 21 22 23 24 25 26

S P I R A L
1 24 17 26 9 20

When we added up each individual number, we achieved the number of characters in each line, 34.

1+2+4+1+7+2+6+9+2=34

Each paragraph was then grouped into 34 character lines. Next, we put each paragraph into a spiral starting from the end of the paragraph moving left. When the spiral was completed, the last letter in the original paragraph was the first letter in the final. Ultimately, the middle letter of the original paragraph became the last letter of the spiraled paragraph. The result was four paragraphs in spiraled format with each paragraph in lines of 34 characters each. When we finished the spiral and put the paragraphs back into thirty four character lines, we added two words to the beginning of each paragraph. These two words were actually the encoded numbers as noted above. The first word stood for the number of spaces to leave out when breaking the code, and the second represented how many 34 character lines each paragraph contained. This made it extremely easy for the message to be decrypted by the group members with the key, but extremely difficult for the enemy group members to break the code. When the two words are not removed, all of the 34 character lines are different because letters are grouped in the wrong order. Additionally, we added the word QHNNHGB (encoded KENNEDY) once into each spiraled paragraph. If this word were not removed, the whole passage would again be almost impossible to break. After the code was spiraled, we separated the lines so they appeared to be regular words. We even used two letters to represent the one letter words A and I, even though these two letters were not the substitutions for A and I. When Samir overheard Phil and John talking, we realized that this tactic worked. Both believed the code was a regular paragraph that used basic substitution rather than the complex encryption that it was.

### Breaking the Null Set Group's Code

In the decipherment endeavor of "The Null Set" our group made many observations, but were unsuccessful in solving the code. The entire code is made up of only seven different symbols and varied spaces. This told us that several symbols together stood for one letter. The reason for the first ten lines being made up of symbols with very few spaces was of interest to us. These lines were spaced quite different than any other lines of the code. We decided that this was either some kind of title at the beginning of the plain text or else the plain text began with some rather long words, in order to throw us off.

We first tried to discover what the symbol for a space between words was, since the space could possibly be a symbol as well. We ended up assuming that the space was indeed that for now. We counted the individual symbols for a frequency test. The "copyright" symbol came up 277 times on the first page of the code, however, the symbol never stood on it's own. It was paired with (by which we mean "directly followed by") the "pound" symbol 69 times, with the "3/4" symbol 35 times, with another "copyright" symbol 13 times, with "mu" symbol 20 times, with the ěsquiggleî symbol 34 times, with a ěparagraphî symbol 17 times, and it was never followed by the ěplus and minusî symbol. We noticed that the ěplus and minusî symbol was always group with the ěmuî symbol and always followed that symbol. This combination showed up 14 times throughout the whole code, and only once on the first page. We counted out the rest of the pairs on the first page, using each symbol paired with the other five and itself, to come up with the frequency of 37 different pairs total. Some of these would have to be eliminated since there are only 26 letters in the alphabet. We would also have to take into account pairings of three, four, five, and so on, symbols. This would be a tedious task, with a lot of results. The job of deciding which pairings actually stood for a letter would have had to go on a very slow guess and check basis. The decryption of this groups code would, indefinitely be a lengthy task, especially attempted at our angle (the guess and check method). Had time permitted, we would have made some interesting finds and possibly broken the code. We accepted defeat in this case and moved on to the next groupís code.

### Breaking the Kryptonite Group's Code

When attempting to decipher Kryptonite's code we became quite frustrated. At first glance it is obvious that it is entirely made up of the English alphabet (entirely in capitol letters) mixed with various punctuation and symbols. Our first step in the attempted decipherment of this code was to count the letters, punctuation, and symbols. All 26 letters are used along with a question mark, an exclamation point, the symbol for 'at', an asterisk, and a plus sign. This told us that a single letter substitution was not used. We then discussed whether two asterisks stood for a repeated letter or whether * and ** stand for two separate letters. We disagreed whether or not the asterisks were separate letters and decided to move on and study the letter frequencies. We counted the letter frequencies in the first 5 lines. They were all very similar with the exception of X and Q which didn't appear at all. We found this rather interesting being that X and Q are also not used very frequently in the English alphabet. This discovery didn't seam to lead us anywhere so we moved on to searching for repeated letters. This did not last very long either being that there are no repeated letters or symbols in the entire encoded text (with the exception of **). We then talked about the possibility of the Kryptonites substituting punctuation for repeated letters. This is very possible because symbols like @ and ! or @ and ? occurring right next to each other are very common. We did finally give up and admit defeat and in doing so we give the Kryptonites credit for their code making abilities as well as the extra work that went into their web site. Very Impressive.

### Breaking the Enigma Group's Code

For work on the Enigma group's code, we started off by counting the number of characters per line, the number of lines per paragraph, and the number of paragraphs total. In the Enigma group's code, there are sixty numbers in each line, twenty lines per paragraph, and seven paragraphs. Each line's numbers are divided regularly into twenty groups of five numbers each.

Knowing that, we moved on to try to figure out a method in which to break the code. Because the Enigma group uses numbers instead of letters, we couldn't attempt to do a straight-out letter frequency count as there are only 10 numbers used, 0 through 9. We did check, however, the number frequency overall in the entire code using Microsoft Word's "Replace" tool. We found the following information which is arranged from most frequent to least frequent:

1. 9 - 1290 times
2. 4 - 1061 times
3. 2 - 942 times
4. 1 - 927 times
5. 0 - 887 times
6. 3 - 727 times
7. 7 - 719 times
8. 8 - 702 times
9. 6 - 615 times
10. 5 - 530 times

We have no idea what this means, but 9 is a popular number.

Anyway, obviously, combinations of numbers must have been used to represent the 26 letters of the alphabet. This could be random, or maybe a chart was used to determine which numbers stood for which letters. We went on the assumption that the code had pairs of numbers representing something, be it a letter or otherwise. However, for all we know, this assumption could be totally wrong, and the Enigma group could have used three or four numbers representing a letter.

Following this hypothesis, Jackie did the extremely, extremely tedious task of arranging the entire code into groups of two:

After doing this joyful, probably wasteful, perhaps useless task, we then proceeded to test all the possible combinations of number pairs in the code starting from 00 up to 99. Below are the data from that pursuit.

The numbers in bold font are those that appear most frequently. While at first we thought they could represent the 26 letters, we then realized that many letters of the English language aren't used as frequently as this code was claiming they did. For instance, letters like z and q are very infrequent, but my assumption on this code would mean that both letters would appear at least 30 times in the piece. From this data, it would seem likely to me that the letter "e" was 19 because it is the most frequent number. Other frequent letters like "a", "s", "t", and "r" might also correspond to the numbers that show up more times than others. As for the rest of the letters, from my theory, it's conceivable that they are random placeholders, though this is sort of unlikely. While it would be a clever throw-off for potential enemies, it probably would be tedious for fellow group members to remember which numbers were place holders and which ones actually stood for letters.

Regardless of the flaws, we tried to test the theory anyway. When we tried to do so by placing my guesses on the letters in for the corresponding numbers into the code, we didn't get very far. For instance, we put in "e" for 19, "a" for 03, "s" for 22, and "r" for 54. Trying combinations like that proved to be a failure. Part of our problem may be that we weren't taking into account that the arrangement of the words could have been set according to a complex geometric shape, such as a rectangle, but starting at an opposite end and moving from the right to the left or something similar. If that were the case, we would surely get a lot of nonsense words trying to read the code as if it was written normally because we would be reading the words in the wrong way. Even not taking this into account though, we still couldn't figure out a way to determine if our method was correct other than the long and tedious guess-and-check substitution method. We did not get any coherent words from the code by trying this, which was the only way we could think of to try to test our hypothesis. We, therefore, did not succeed in solving Enigma's code.

Conclusions: While we did not solve any of the other group's codes, we would still like to extend a congratulations to their fine encryption abilities. We have accepted defeat, but are also willing to bet that our code (The Crypts) was never deciphered either. We feel that this was an interesting and challenging group project with a fun time had by all.
