Baconian cipher example

2 posts in this topic

#1 ·  Posted (edited)

This example is a slightly modified version of Francis Bacon's cipher, and is the result of me viewing this wikipedia page.

Like some of my previous scripts, this was hid away from daylight before it was finally posted.

#cs
_CoverText_Encrypt($Cover,$Text,$CoverMode=1,$MessageMode=1)
DESCRIPTION
    Changes the case of characters in $Cover to save $Text in.
    Up to 7 bits for each character in $Text is saved, supporting the range [0x20, 0x7E]
    Note: the 7 bits used are further mixed to prevent immediate decryption by hand.
PARAMETERS
    $Cover - The fake text to hide the encrypted message in.
    $Text - The Message to hide in $Cover
    $CoverMode   -  A switch to define how to handle what happens when the Cover is too short
        0 - Cut the Message to fit the length of the Cover
        1 - Extend the Cover to fit the length of the Message
    $MessageMode -  A switch to define how to handle what happens when the Cover is too long
        0 - Cut the Cover to fit the length of the Message
        1 - Pad the Message with spaces to use the entire Cover message
    Mode combinations
        CoverMode,MessageMode - Description
        0,0 - No Padding, Cover is cut to whichever input was shortest
        0,1 - No Cover modification, Message length is dependent on Cover length
        1,0 - No Message Modification, Cover length is dependent on Message length
        1,1 - No Cutting, Cover is padded to whicher input was longest
     
RETURN VALUES
    A string containing a version of $Cover that also contains the string $Text encrypted into it's capitalizations.

While this is a modified Bacon's cipher - it works on the same principle, using letter case to store textual information.

(Note: the "Message" box is also the where the result of a Decryption appears)

Here is an example of encoded text with this example:

Hidden Message: "Have tons of fun! "
