CodeX Project [CONCEPT]

Updated: Jan 25, 2022

// Introduction to The CodeX Project...


Hey Hackers! Blue Cosmo from CCS here and today I wanted to talk to you guys about my new upcoming project, The CodeX Project!

Project Name: The CodeX Project


A python shell script that is well equipped with 10 different ciphers. This script can encrypt plaintext files and decrypt/bruteforce ciphertext files. Useful for CTF, encrypting files, decrypting or bruteforcing "common" ciphers, etc.


  • Code = cipher

  • X = Roman numeral for "10",

  • Code X = 10 ciphers

  • Assassins Creed

  • Codex pages

Parts: [CIPHERS]

  • Caesar

  • Vigenere

  • Multiplicative

  • Reverse

  • ROT13

  • Base64

  • Phonetic

  • Binary

  • Octal

  • Hexadecimal


  • Plaintext Encryption

  • Ciphertext decryption and bruteforcing

  • File input and output



The CodeX Project was inspired by the game Assassins Creed II. In the game, there were these Codex pages that were written by Altaïr Ibn-La'Ahad. His Codex was a journal written that documented his adventures with the Apple of Eden. What's cool about this is that these pages were encrypted with the Caesar Cipher.

I had learned about the Caesar Cipher in a cryptography course I took. In the said course, I also learned about plenty of other cool ciphers and encryption techniques. Only then I realized how fun it would be to program these different ciphers. To be able to encrypt plaintext, decrypt the ciphertext, or brute force certain encryptions would just be a cool and useful tool to have.
