// 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
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.
