Using the Programs
A separate page is used for each cipher type with information on the history or origin of the cipher, a description of the encryption method and an example. The encryption methods used by Crypto Programs are based on those used by the American Cryptogram Association.
The plaintext and keys should be entered into the fields surrounded by a red box and the cipher will be displayed in the field with a blue box.
