Codes and Ciphers   A History Of Cryptography

This vintage book contains Alexander D?Agapeyeff?s famous 1939 work, ?Codes and Ciphers - A History of Cryptography?. Cryptography is the employment of codes and ciphers to protect secrets, and it has a long and interesting history. This fantastic volume offers a detailed history of cryptography from ancient times to modernity, written by the Russian-born English cryptographer, Alexander D'Agapeyeff. Contents include: ?The beginnings of Cryptography?, ?From the Middle Ages Onwards?, ?Signals, Signs, and Secret Languages?, ?Commercial Codes?, ?Military Codes and Ciphers?, ?Types of Codes and Ciphers?, ?Methods of Deciphering?, etcetera. Many antiquarian texts such as this, especially those dating back to the 1900s and before, are increasingly hard to come by and expensive, and it is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high quality edition. It comes complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.

Uncracked Codes and Ciphers

Readers examine eight codes and ciphers that could not be cracked. The ancient Phaistos Disc, circa 1700 BCE, the Voynich Manuscript with its strange illustrations from the fifteenth century, the location of the buried treasure of 1819 as described in the Beale Papers, Edward Elgar’s Dorabella Cipher of 1897, the Chaocipher of 1918, the D’Agapeyeff Challenge Cipher of 1939, the Zodiac Killer’s 408 Cipher from the late 1960s, and the Kryptos Monument ciphers of 1990 are all undeciphered today. These riddles have eluded the best cryptographers, but, with time, new tools, and a little luck, the eight codes will someday be cracked.

Cracking Codes with Python

Each program includes the full code and a line-by-line explanation of how things work. By the end of the book, you’ll have learned how to code in Python and you’ll have the clever programs to prove it!

Cracking Codes with Python

Learn how to program in Python while making and breaking ciphers—algorithms used to create and send secret messages! After a crash course in Python programming basics, you’ll learn to make, test, and hack programs that encrypt text with classical ciphers like the transposition cipher and Vigenère cipher. You’ll begin with simple programs for the reverse and Caesar ciphers and then work your way up to public key cryptography, the type of encryption used to secure today’s online transactions, including digital signatures, email, and Bitcoin. Each program includes the full code and a line-by-line explanation of how things work. By the end of the book, you’ll have learned how to code in Python and you’ll have the clever programs to prove it! You’ll also learn how to: - Combine loops, variables, and flow control statements into real working programs - Use dictionary files to instantly detect whether decrypted messages are valid English or gibberish - Create test programs to make sure that your code encrypts and decrypts correctly - Code (and hack!) a working example of the affine cipher, which uses modular arithmetic to encrypt a message - Break ciphers with techniques such as brute-force and frequency analysis There’s no better way to learn to code than to play with real programs. Cracking Codes with Python makes the learning fun!
