1- you will make encryption and decryption in transposition cipher the plaintext is HELLO WORLD the ciphertext is dlrowolleh
2-المثال الثاني سوف يكون بطريقه ال (zigzag methods(rail fence cipher ايضا تسوون encryption & decryption palin text: meet me tomorrow cipher text: memtmrweteooo
3-المثال الثالث سيكون بطريقه reversed zigzag methods(reversed rail fence cipher) ايضا المطلوب عمليه encryption and decryption plaintext:rail fence cipher cipher text:rhienfirepccela
4-التجربه الرابعه بطريقه route variation cipher ايضا encryption and decryption plaintext:meet me tomorrow ciphertext;mttooemorweemr ويفضل encryption برنامج و decryption
برنامج اخر 5-مرحبا التجربه الرابعه بطريقه Morse code عمليه encryption plaintext:MEET ME TOMORROW ciphertext:_.. وهكذا باقي الحروف هذه الطريقه ناتج التشفير يعني cipher يظهر على شكل شارحات ونقاط مرحبا التجربه الخامسه ستكون بطريقه(number cipher (letter to number cipher عمليه encryption and decryption plaintext: number cipher ciphertext: 14 21 13 2 5 18 3 9 16 8 5 18
--------------------------------------------------------------- مرحبا التجربه السادسه ستكون بطريقه ASCII cipher عمليه encryption and decryption phaintext: A B C D ciphertext: 65 66 67 68 -------------------------------------------------------------------------- مرحبا التجربه السابعه ستكون بطريقه (Reciprocal cipher (Atbash cipher ايضا عمليه encryption and decryption plaintext:A B C D ciphertext:Z Y X W ------------------------------------------------------- مرحبا التجربه الثامنه ستكون بطريقه Caesar cipher ايضا عمليه encryption and decryption plaintext: caesar cipher key:3 ciphertext:fdhvduflskhu
