Reply To: The official Challenge 10 tips and hints thread



Couldn’t think of versions of transposition cipher until doing some reading from Gaines’ Cryptanylsis book. Link below for anyone who fancies some reading.–%20a%20study%20of%20ciphers%20and%20their%20solution_text.pdf

Don’t know if you’re allowed to answer this yet, but could the 10B cipher be one of Myszkowski Transposition or the AMSCO? It would save us a lot of time if we could narrow it down to exactly what type of cipher we’re trying to decode…

[It is a great book, and there is a copy in the official BOSS library. You will find (roughly) the type of cipher published in the official hints now. That should get you started! Harry]
