I need help. What is the best way to get better at ciphers? Are there certain useful/helpful websites for a beginner-slash-intermediate person to read and learn from (regarding ciphers, cryptanalysis, etc.)? Books? Ahh! I don’t really know how to enunciate my struggles.
I just don’t really understand how we’re supposed know how to crack the later challenges. Is it a coding thing? How much do we have to know about ciphers to do so? Like – HOOW?
