To give you a small taste of twentieth century cryptography, why not try your hand at solving the above cryptogram?
Guess the true value of each of the letters in this cryptogram by typing your guesses below the cryptogram. When you've cracked the code and all of your guesses are correct, you'll see a secret message!
Need help? We've included a couple of hints below.
This is a monoalphabetic substitution cipher. That means that the numbers of characters between the original letters and the encrypted letters are the same. For example, if you guess that B=G, that's five characters apart. This means that C=H, D=I, E=J, and so on.
The encrypted message is in English, so pay attention to the length of certain letter groupings that might reveal the most likely words and/or letters.
Breaking Codes and Breaking Barriers
Congratulations on solving our cryptogram! This playful cryptogram exercise provides a brief glimpse into the world of cryptology. The first female cryptologists cracked codes that were, of course, far more challenging with much greater stakes than the one you just deciphered.
