Sharky's Vigenere Cipher This page is for amusement only. Instructions are given below this form. instructions: Enter the string to encrypt or decrypt in the Input field (you may copy and paste it from another text editor). Enter the key in the Key field. (You may use any sequence of characters, but only alphabetic characters will actually be processed. On most computers: To copy: Highlight text, press Ctrl-C; To paste: Position cursor, press Ctrl-V. explanation: Vigenere coding is one of the most ancient forms of cryptography. Choose a key that is as long as the plaintext message. Unfortunately, these steps take all the fun out of the Vigenere cipher. Vigenere ciphers with moderate keys are appropriate for situations that do not require failproof security. We hope you enjoy this simple JavaScript-based implementation.

The Top Secret Language of Flowers eyes only; - DO NOT FAX - DocRef# 10.401892.112a-j: The following classified document provides a brief introduction and overview of the top secret language of flowers; while you are in the field, most of the updates regarding your mission status will be delivered in this fashion. Do not reveal or refer to any of this information to anyone not personally known to you and in your division or chain of command. Floral "messages" may be delivered to you at any time during your mission. Always assume that you may be under surveillance by enemy counterintelligence agents and act accordingly. When you receive a coded floral message, respond warmly or otherwise as you deem appropriate. Read over this document until you have memorized its contents, then destroy it.

Arctolatry GC1M2NP A Lesson in Ciphers # 1 (Unknown Cache) in Missouri, United States created by TripCyclone This cache series is designed to give you an introduction to the world of ciphers. It will not cover every type of cipher out there, instead focusing on a small variety of different ciphers. Hopefully, you will walk away from solving this series with a new set of puzzle solving skills. I have designed this series such that you will not be able to solve them all in one swipe. Cryptography is defined as the practice and study of hiding information. For your first lesson, we'll use a cipher that I am certain ALL OF YOU have used already. abeguguveglrvtugqrterrfsvsglsbhecbvaggjbbarguerr jrfgavarglsbheqrterrfguveglguerrcbvagmrebsviravar You are looking for a small lock 'n lock container.

MP3Stego When looking at the steganographic tools available on the Net, it occurred to me that nothing had been done to hide information in MP3 files, that is sound tracks compressed using the MPEG Audio Layer III format. There is a growing interest world-wide in MP3 or indeed WMA files because they offer near-CD quality at compression ratio of 11 to 1 (128 kilobits per second). This gives a very good opportunity for information hiding. Although WMA has better quality in general, I did not have access to code and only an implementation for MP3 is provided as a proof of concept. MP3Stego will hide information in MP3 files during the compression process. The hiding process takes place at the heart of the Layer III encoding process namely in the inner_loop. We have discussed earlier the power of parity for information hiding.

Nonverbal Communication Communication in general is process of sending and receiving messages that enables humans to share knowledge, attitudes, and skills. Although we usually identify communication with speech, communication is composed of two dimensions - verbal and nonverbal. Nonverbal communication has been defined as communication without words. “Everything communicates,” including material objects, physical space, and time systems. No matter how one can try, one cannot not communicate. He who has eye to see and ears to hear may convince himself that no mortal can keep a secret. Commonly, nonverbal communication is learned shortly after birth and practiced and refined throughout a person’s lifetime. Young children know far more than they can verbalize and are generally more adept at reading nonverbal cues than adults are because of their limited verbal skills and their recent reliance on the nonverbal to communicate. Humans use nonverbal communication because: Gestures Edward T. 1. 2. 3. 4.

Cryptography When I wrote my first book, Fermat’s Last Theorem, I made a passing reference to the mathematics of cryptography. Although I did not know it at the time, this was the start of a major interest in the history and science of codes and code breaking, which has resulted in a 400-page book on the subject, an adaptation of the book for teenagers, a 5-part TV series, numerous talks and lectures, the purchase of an Enigma cipher machine and the development of an interactive crypto CD-ROM. In the Crypto Corner, you will find details about my book on cryptography (The Code Book), information about my TV series based on the book (The Science of Secrecy) and you can explore the Black Chamber, which is an interactive encryption and codebreaking section. You will also find a section about the Cipher Challenge, there are some cryptograms (coded messages) for you to try and crack, a free downloadable CD-ROM version of The Code Book, and a quick Q&A based on the questions I am most often asked.

practical dream analysis & waking life meaning Drawing by Catherine MacIntyre The above title may seem odd, if not a complete contradiction. Why would anyone suggest that nightmares or anxiety dreams might be helpful? If you're in the half of the population that has experienced an anxiety dream or nightmare within the last month, then this may even be what you're wishing you could get rid of, right? Almost everyone has experienced one or more dreams that contain anxiety or outright fear. Though it has been scientifically proven that we all dream every night, fear of nightmares or other anxieties or misguided beliefs about dreams and the unconscious can block dream recall. Psychologist Ernest Rossi has put forth that one important function of dreaming is integration: the combining of separate psychological structures into a more balanced and comprehensive personality. Resolving Nightmares Fortunately, there exist treatments for nightmares that do not involve medication and which have shown to be very effective.
