# Prime Numbers Cipher

## Prime Numbers Encoder

Tool to decrypt/encrypt using prime numbers. The Prime Numbers cipher consists in associating each character a prime number.

### How to encrypt using Prime Numbers cipher?

The encryption uses a correspondence between prime numbers and letters. By default, replace the 26 letters of the alphabet with the 26 first prime numbers (A=2, B=3, C=5, D=7, ..., Z=101).

Example: DCODE is crypted 7,5,47,7,11

### How to decrypt Prime Numbers cipher?

Decryption requires knowing the correspondence used between prime numbers and letters. By default, A = 2, B = 3, C = 5, ...

Example: The cipher message is 7,5,47,7,11 then it will be decrypted into DCODE.

### How to recognize a Prime Numbers ciphertext?

The message is only made of prime numbers. The first 26 prime numbers are 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13, 17, 19, 23, 29, 31, 37, 41, 43, 47, 53, 59, 61, 67, 71, 73, 79, 83, 89, 97 and 101.

### What are the variants of the Prime Numbers cipher?

It is possible to define an alternative correspondence (or random) between prime numbers and letters.

Example: Random substitution: A=17, B=43, C=101, D=3, etc.

To decode this alternative, convert the numbers into letters using the decryption form and then perform a monoalphabetical substitution.

The South African Scouts Cipher uses prime numbers that are multiplied together. It is then necessary to use a prime decomposition.

Example: 110 = 2*5*11 = A,C,E.

In this case, the order of letters is not necessarily preserved (ACE = 2*5*11 = 110 and ECA = 11*5*2 = 110 too), it is then necessary to use an anagram generator or a permutations generator to find the right permutation of letters.
