Simple Ciphers: cipher-tool.py

Filed under: Encryption,My Software — Didier Stevens @ 0:00

When I left my last position, my friends and colleagues with whom I’ve worked for years gave me a little challenge: a PDF with a hidden ciphertext. At first I had to use Excel to decipher the ciphertext, but later I wrote a small Python tool to help me.

The simple ciphers supported by this tool are XOR, ROT, Vigenère and subtract (I added that last one because it was used in a maldoc). You can use the man page (option -m) to learn more.
