I am the leader of a team. I am trying to solve Mission 6A but I could not find any clues. It says that it’s the same as Mission 5A but I cannot see any obvious links. Could you help?

I will allow suitable clues to this now, so if anyone wants to try their hand at one, have a go! Harry21st November 2022 at 4:49 pm #87337RhydwenParticipant
If you aren’t having any success with the start, have a look at the end. That may prove an easier target.22nd November 2022 at 1:56 pm #87342BobDParticipant
2538 characters – it will help if you factorise this number.22nd November 2022 at 1:56 pm #87343professor-countParticipant
I’m also struggling with this one. I think I have tried the techniques from the last week, I’ve also tried looking at the end but I can not see what I am missing. Please, if anyone else has any more hints I would be eternally grateful.22nd November 2022 at 3:46 pm #87347madnessParticipant
Have you tried to brute-force it? There are only 6! possible keys. Oops! Did I say too much?22nd November 2022 at 5:43 pm #87348madnessParticipant
If you look closely at the ciphertext, you might see traces of words. Follow the tracks and you can get to a solution.24th November 2022 at 9:05 am #87355BobDParticipant
There aren’t that many Js24th November 2022 at 9:04 pm #87374Mattyrat2027Participant
Assuming I’m not completely on the wrong track (do correct me if so), would it be permitted to reveal whether it is written/read by columns/rows or rows/columns etc.

I got close with 254310 (giving some nearly completed words) but there were still incorrect letters. I must be doing something wrong with 530124, as it doesn’t seem any more solved.
Any more tips please?25th November 2022 at 4:19 pm #87383f6exbParticipant
At the end, something look like “crypt”, “decrypt” or “decrypted”.

As there is only one “E” in the last 12 characters, it’s not “decrypted”.25th November 2022 at 6:10 pm #87384Mattyrat2027Participant25th November 2022 at 6:10 pm #87385madnessParticipant
@RAT, maybe you are working with the inverse permutation.26th November 2022 at 11:20 am #87390Mattyrat2027Participant
I take this to mean that if I use the reverse key with the reverse ciphertext I get a result?
