CIS 3362 Homework #1 Monoalphabetic Ciphers Due: Friday, 9/10/2010 Note: This is a group assignment. Each pair of students should turn in one write-up in class on the due date. Both students' names should clearly be at the top of the front page of the assignment. Students may also turn in the assignment by themselves if they do not wish to have a partner. Decode the following ciphertexts. Please use the the two tools that I have provided off the course webpage and any tools you may create yourself, and in your write-up, describe the steps you took and why you took them in decrypting the ciphertext. At the end of your description, reveal the full matching plaintext. 1) (shift) mubsecujeshofjesbqiixefujxyicuiiqwumqidjiexqhtjerhuqa 2) (affine) ijchedjckmteckjgrlerdjerecktmregkmtumwsgtdvwkddrughhmxdjefmkkczh eoeuklmtdxmrqeddmircdelmitijgddjeetsrufdcmtxwtsdcmtigk 3) (substitution) klpxulkccufpoikrukqksbfqlusujbfcdhbbibdlujkqksjhbsuqbpibbtqlufgt euibdqlpqibbtksvkqlkfbfubdpobvuibdqvbpfcqlusgtbdkqsdkisqqvbckakq

WEHAVEFINALLYFINISHEDTHEFIRSTWEEKOFCLASS 5) Consider a language with an alphabet size of 48. How many possible affine cipher keys could there be for this language? 6) Given that the encryption function for an affine cipher (in Spanish, with 30 alphabet characters) is f(x) = (13x + 4) % 30, determine the corresponding decryption function. Please show all of your work. 7) You are attempting to break an affine cipher. You believe that the ciphertext ‘A’ maps to the plaintext letter ‘e’ and that the ciphertext ‘V’ maps to the plaintext ‘t’. Determine the encryption function used based on these two pieces of information....

    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.
