Caesar Cipher


A Caesar cipher is a very simple encryption technique which involves replacing every letter by a letter some fixed number of positions down the alphabet. For example, when “hello” is used with a shift of 3, “khoor” would be formed. The alphabet wraps, so “z” with a shift of 2 would become “b”. The following passage is encrypted using a shift of 16:

Yj mqi jxu ruij ev jycui, yj mqi jxu mehij ev jycui, yj mqi jxu qwu ev myitec, yj mqi jxu qwu ev veebyixduii, yj mqi jxu ufesx ev rubyuv, yj mqi jxu ufesx ev ydshutkbyjo, yj mqi jxu iuqied ev Bywxj, yj mqi jxu iuqied ev Tqhaduii, yj mqi jxu ifhydw ev xefu, yj mqi jxu mydjuh ev tuifqyh, mu xqt uluhojxydw ruvehu ki, mu xqt dejxydw ruvehu ki, mu muhu qbb weydw tyhusj je Xuqlud, mu muhu qbb weydw tyhusj jxu ejxuh mqo.
