    Basic Cryptology For Preppers

    Basic Cryptology For Preppers | Survival

    Cryptology is a subject that seems most appropriately applied to spy movies, but it does not need to be so limited. A coded message can be created and used by the average person, just as well as James Bond. Any parent with an older child knows about reaching the point where spelled words are no longer secret. Just like no longer being able to spell words in front of a child, there may come a time where a message may not be safely written in plain English. Enter basic cryptology, a process where messages can be written in code and safely passed back and forth between specific individuals without other parties being able to understand it.
    Good info.

    Very basic Cryptgology (Secret Code) we used as kids.... If you ever read Little Orphan Annie, you might have seen this explained... Anyone try it out.

    There are plenty of pen and pencil cyphers to be found with a google search.
    Many can be readily "automated" with simple basic programs or Excel sheets.

    The trick is to make sure the recipient is in on the secret. This gets difficult if
    you can't securely communicate the method in person or by some very secure communication.

    Here's one URL for anyone curious. Hand Ciphers

    Then for us moderns there is this.

    Does that spell "Ovaltine?"

    Actually it's based on the alphabet in three TIC TAC TOE boards and it says

    Cool

    This is how my me and my Wife intend to verbally communicate when the SHTF.
    I am going to send this female an E-mail and see if she is teaching classes.

    On a serious note.

    This is a great code method & it would be pretty much unbreakable.

    Another good method for a prepper to code messages is using a book that is common to both parties. If you decide that a copy of The Hunt For Red October by Tom Clancy will be the book used, all that has to be done is find the word needed and record the page number, line number, and word on that line that the word is. For example, the word might be “truck” and would be recorded as 4 17 6 because it is located on page four, in line seventeen, and it is the sixth word in the line. Much like the cipher, this code could be used with only one book or several books.

    I wonder if adding two supplemental identical old out of print dictionaries might be even better?

    That way every word that could not be easily located in the primary book could be coded with an */page/line (the asterisk would mean Go To The Dictionary) and the chances of any unauthorized person knowing exactly what specific defunct vintage dictionary you are using would be extremely remote.

    If you are of a mind to prepare something in advance it is hard to beat the old standard "One time pad". Slow but reliable, and if done properly unbreakable. You can vary the security level if you want. One line per message, per paragraph, sentence, word, or even character. Only draw backs are you have to securely distribute the pads, and of course, if you use it properly, you use it up. The more security you want the faster you consume the pad.

    The problem with most simple single substitutions is that the frequency of letters in words in the English language is somewhat predictable as are certain combinations. If you don't insert nulls or use set character blocks decoding a message is not much more difficult than playing "Wheel of Fortune."

    A friend of mine is a cryptologist. I showed her the link and she said it is very basic and easy to break.

    I said "yeah, for someone like you it would be easy - but what about the average person who has no training in cryptology?"

    She agreed that the average person wouldn't know how to break the code.
