Flip over the paper and trace what you wrote. You'll be tracing it backwards. It should come out like how you would see your regular writing if you were to hold it up to a mirror.

For fun, write down different words, or write a note to someone, then reverse it and send it to them. Invisible Ink: If you write with white crayon on a white piece of paper, it looks like there's nothing there. But if you then paint over it, your invisible writing will magically appear. Write words, phrases or even a note to someone, and then impress them by making it magically appear!

The article also stimulated the almost immediate public development of a new class of enciphering algorithms, the asymmetric key algorithms.

Prior to that time, all useful modern encryption algorithms had been symmetric key algorithms, in which the same cryptographic key is used with the underlying algorithm by both the sender and the recipient, who must both keep it secret. All of the electromechanical machines used in WWII were of this logical class, as were the Caesar and Atbash ciphers and essentially all cipher systems throughout history.

The 'key' for a code is the codebook, which must likewise be distributed and kept secret, and so shares most of the same problems in practice. Of necessity, the key in every such system had to be exchanged between the communicating parties in some secure way prior to any use of the system the term usually used is 'via a secure channel' such as a trustworthy courier with a briefcase handcuffed to a wrist, or face-to-face contact, or a loyal carrier pigeon. This key management requirement is never trivial and very rapidly becomes unmanageable as the number of participants increases, or when secure channels aren't available for key exchange, or when, as is sensible cryptographic practice, keys are frequently changed.

In particular, if messages are meant to be secure from other users, a separate key is required for each possible pair of users. A system of this kind is known as a secret key, or symmetric key cryptosystem.

D-H key exchange and succeeding improvements and variants made operation of these systems much easier, and more secure, than had ever been possible before in all of history. In contrast, asymmetric key encryption uses a pair of mathematically related keys, each of which decrypts the encryption performed using the other.

Some, but not all, of these algorithms have the additional property that one of the paired keys cannot be deduced from the other by any known method other than trial and error. An algorithm of this kind is known as a public key or asymmetric key system. Using such an algorithm, only one key pair is needed per user. By designating one key of the pair as private always secret , and the other as public often widely available , no secure channel is needed for key exchange.

Cracking Ancient Codes: Cuneiform Writing - with Irving Finkel

So long as the private key stays secret, the public key can be widely known for a very long time without compromising security, making it safe to reuse the same key pair indefinitely. For two users of an asymmetric key algorithm to communicate securely over an insecure channel, each user will need to know their own public and private keys as well as the other user's public key. Take this basic scenario: Alice and Bob each have a pair of keys they've been using for years with many other users.

At the start of their message, they exchange public keys, unencrypted over an insecure line. Alice then encrypts a message using her private key, and then re-encrypts that result using Bob's public key.

## Encryption for Kids!

The double-encrypted message is then sent as digital data over a wire from Alice to Bob. Bob receives the bit stream and decrypts it using his own private key, and then decrypts that bit stream using Alice's public key. If the final result is recognizable as a message, Bob can be confident that the message actually came from someone who knows Alice's private key presumably actually her if she's been careful with her private key , and that anyone eavesdropping on the channel will need Bob's private key in order to understand the message.

Asymmetric algorithms rely for their effectiveness on a class of problems in mathematics called one-way functions, which require relatively little computational power to execute, but vast amounts of power to reverse, if reversal is possible at all. A classic example of a one-way function is multiplication of very large prime numbers.

It's fairly quick to multiply two large primes, but very difficult to find the factors of the product of two large primes. Because of the mathematics of one-way functions, most possible keys are bad choices as cryptographic keys; only a small fraction of the possible keys of a given length are suitable, and so asymmetric algorithms require very long keys to reach the same level of security provided by relatively shorter symmetric keys. Since symmetric algorithms can often use any sequence of random, or at least unpredictable bits as a key, a disposable session key can be quickly generated for short-term use.

Consequently, it is common practice to use a long asymmetric key to exchange a disposable, much shorter but just as strong symmetric key. The slower asymmetric algorithm securely sends a symmetric session key, and the faster symmetric algorithm takes over for the remainder of the message. GCHQ has released documents claiming they had developed public key cryptography before the publication of Diffie and Hellman's paper.

Various classified papers were written at GCHQ during the s and s which eventually led to schemes essentially identical to RSA encryption and to Diffie-Hellman key exchange in and Some of these have now been published, and the inventors James H. Ellis, Clifford Cocks, and Malcolm Williamson have made public select parts of their work.

The public developments of the s broke the near monopoly on high quality cryptography held by government organizations, refer to S Levy's Crypto for a journalistic account of some of the policy controversy of the time in the US. For the first time ever, those outside government organizations had access to cryptography not readily breakable by anyone, including governments. Considerable controversy, and conflict, both public and private, began more or less immediately.

It has not yet subsided. In many countries, for example, export of cryptography is subject to restrictions. Until export from the U. One of the most significant people favouring strong encryption for public use was Phil Zimmermann. He distributed a freeware version of PGP when he felt threatened by legislation then under consideration by the US Government that would require backdoors to be included in all cryptographic products developed within the US. His system was released worldwide shortly after he released it in the US, and that began a long criminal investigation of him by the US Government Justice Department for the alleged violation of export restrictions.

The Justice Department eventually dropped its case against Zimmermann, and the freeware distribution of PGP has continued around the world. The development of cryptography has been paralleled by near equal developments in cryptoanalysis — of the "breaking" of codes and ciphers. The early discovery and application of frequency analysis to the reading of encrypted communications has on occasion altered the course of history. Modern cryptoanalysts sometimes harness large numbers of integrated circuits. While modern ciphers like AES and the higher quality asymmetric ciphers are widely considered unbreakable, poor designs and implementations are still sometimes adopted and there have been important cryptanalytic breaks of deployed crypto systems in recent years.

All of these are symmetric ciphers. Thus far, not one of the mathematical ideas underlying public key cryptography has been proven to be 'unbreakable', and so some future mathematical analysis advance might render systems relying on them insecure.

## Cryptography

While few informed observers foresee such a breakthrough, the key size recommended for security as best practice keeps increasing as increased computing power required for breaking codes becomes cheaper and more available. More recent developments utilising quantum computing is the NTRUEncrypt lattice based systems first proposed in This currently appears to be the leading candidate when RSA and elliptic curve cryptography eventually need to be withdrawn.

DVP and DES are self-synchronizing modes of operation, coverage range is slightly degraded due to data errors due to Rayleigh fading on radio channel. For operation on fading radio channels, this provides encryption coverage range similar to analog FM voice coverage. Since current generation of trunking control channels are not encrypted, someone could monitor which talkgroups are active and the general level of activity, even though they could not monitor the talkgroup conversations on the traffic channels.
