New Con

Here’s a randomly generated cipher of unknown type. All my ID tests got the correct type. Hill-climber solved it without a crib, but it took a long time. I’ll include a caesar-shifted crib.

  1. It continues DZDBZKDW. My program IDed it correctly, but I had to use the crib to get the hill-climber to solve it.

  2. The key was two words selected at random. I discovered I have written a “key expander” program I had forgotten about. I tried the key expander on my solution and it got two words that gave the solution key. The second word was not the one generated by the encryption program but I like it better.
