The Cipher I choose was a Caesar Cipher and it will shift (13) times to the right. Here is the code: PBATENGHYNGVBAF LBH PENPXRQ GUR PBQR Key: A=N B=O C=P D=Q E=R F=S G=T H=U I=V J=W K=X L=Y M=Z N=A O=B P=C Q=D R=E S=F T=G U=H V=I W=J X=K Y=L Z=M Plaintext : A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z Ciphertext : N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z A B C D E F G H I J K L M Q2- Discuss some techniques that could be used to decipher a text encrypted by Caesar cipher. - Decryption would be easy to crack if the code reader realizes the shift pattern used and reverses it. - Frequency Analysis - Brute Force – several different models available. Hacking the Caesar Cipher with the Brute-Force Technique (March 2018) Q3- Which technique, from techniques discussed in Q2, would be most effective for a cryptanalyst to use to decrypt a text encrypted by Caesar cipher?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
