Answers to Questions

How to encrypt using Baudot cipher

Encryption uses a coding alphabet with 5 bits and 2 character sets (one for the letters, one for the digits and punctuation).

Encryption consists in replacing the characters of the message with their code. To switch character set, one can use a switch combinationhref (⇩ or ⇧).

One want to code DC0D3 with the international telegraphy alphabet n°2.

D = 01001, C = 01110, then 0 (zero) which is not in the character set of the letters

One types the switch key 11011 then the code for 0 = 10110

The next character to code is D, one has to change character set again, this time the switch is 11111, then the code of the letter 01001, etc.

The ciphered message is 01001 01110 11011 10110 11111 01001 11011 00001

How to decrypt Baudot cipher

Decryption requires to know the alphabet used and consists in replacing groups of 5 bits by their associated character.

When the group corresponds to a switch code, one has to change the character set.

Let the message be '01001 01110 11011 10110 11111 01001 11011 00001'

01001 = D, 01110 =>, 11011 = ⇧ (switch to digits), 10110 = 0, 11111 = ⇩ (switch to letters), 01001 = D, 11011 = ⇧ (switch to digits), 00001 = 3

The plain text is DC0D3.

How to recognize an Baudot ciphered text?

The message is written in binaryhref and have a length multiple of 5href.

What is the Least significant bit first?

When coding the binary message, usually one write the value 3 as 00011, with the most significant bit first (the least significant bit the right). One can write also 11000, with, this time, the least significant bit first, on the left.
