Here’s a randomly generated cipher of unknown type. All my ID tests put the correct type on top (the neural net ID tests were unanimous). Hill-climber and key search both solved it without a crib. I’ll include a caesar-shifted crib.

Here’s a randomly generated cipher that is NOT a numbered key cipher. I guessed the type by a process of elimination. I knew it was not a numbered key because I haven’t generated a numbered key cipher with a long enough key to include a cipher symbol in the 90’s. I solved it using my interactive solver and my hill-climber. I needed the crib to solve it. The book it was taken from was not the one I originally guessed.

crib: his whole face and form expressive
My Analyzer correctly identified the type for this unknown and my automatic solver solved it correctly without the crib, but I will include a crib in Caesar. The plaintext is a sentence randomly taken from the Internet.

Here’s another unknown. It consists of one sentence taken randomly from gutenberg.org. My program correctly identified the type and my hillclimber solved it. The text omits a year in numerical form.
This was properly identified by my Analyzer, but it took me some work interactively using the crib to solve it. The text consists of two unrelated sentences randomly pulled from Gutenberg.org

Here’s a randomly generated cipher of unknown type. It took me a long time to solve because the cipher type is not included in my ID tests. My ID tests got the correct general category though. After trying the cipher types listed at the top of my ID tests, I got around to trying what turned out to be the correct type. But with no crib or any other additional information, I had to run a hill-climber many times until I spotted a partial phrase that made sense. I used the corrected phrase for a crib and after several more hill-climbing runs got the solution. I’ll include the phrase I spotted as a caesar-shifted crib.

Here’s a randomly generated cipher of unknown type. The correct type was in first or second place in all my ID tests. Hill-climbing solved it without a crib. key search did too. I’ll include a caesar-shifted crib.

Here’s a randomly generated cipher of unknown type. All of my ID tests put the correct type on top. A key search program got several possible keys. A hill-climber using the best scoring key got a fairly good partial solution. But to get the exact solution I had to use a Google search. I didn’t use a crib but I’ll include a caesar-shifted one.

Here’s a randomly generated cipher of unknown type. I guessed the type without using any ID tests. I ran my hill-climber many times until I got a short phrase that made sense. It was straight-forward to fill in the rest of the words after that. I didn’t guess the complete key. I’ll put up a caesar-shifted crib.
