One of the first true difficult cryptanalysis and hacking examples was the enigma machine. In this assignment, you will encrypt your own crafted message utilizing the tools featured in Chapter 3 of the text.
For this assignment, you will:
- Visit this website: Navy M3/M4 Enigma Machine Emulator
- Encrypt the following message: Cypher codes are fun.
- Change the Umkehrwalze, Walzenlage, Ringstellung, Grundstellung, and input your text letter.
Record all the settings.
- Repeat this process three times.
Upon completion of your encryption exercise, read through the following related summary “How Enigma Machines Work.”
To summarize your encryption experience, write a short paper discussing how cypher text machines work and approximately how long it would take to break your code using a standard brute force method.
Your paper is required to be 3-4 pages in length, not including the title and references pages, and should cite at least 2 scholarly resource . It should follow academic writing standards and APA style guidelines, as appropriate.
