During this week, I was thinking about writing a very long blog post about Cryptography but then it would be too long for the readers that it might get them to feel bored. So, for starters, I thought about making a series of short blog posts called "Let's Cipher This" that would focus on the areas of Cryptography.
What is it about?
Well, the aim of this series is that I want to talk about Codes (I meant secret "codes") and Ciphers, such as:
- How they both work
- How can they both be used to encrypt/decrypt messages
- How to use different methods/strategies to break intercepted code
I know that there are a lot of simple and complex ciphers/crypto algorithmic techniques out there and I wanted to make each post as informative and interactive as possible i.e. by giving a detailed description about the cipher/technique, it's history, how it works and it's implementation, which can also be used as a tool for encrypting/decrypting your own messages.
The series is going to be a "Work in Progress", so there won't be an ending to it as the field of the Cryptography is quite vast, deep and complex. I will be updating this series as often as I can, so watch out for new posts that are related to it!
