Answers to Questions

How to encrypt using Shift cipher?

The encryption uses an alphabet and the position of its letters.

A letter in position N in the alphabet, can be shifted by X into the letter located at position N+X.

Take the letter E in position 5 in the alphabet ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ, it will be encrypted by a shift of 3 in position 8 or H.

If the shifted position exceeds the number of letters in the alphabet, then we take it at the beginning: Z shifted by 1 gives A.

It is thus possible to define different shifts, some shifts correspond to known encryption algorithms (eg the Caesar code), please visit the dedicated pages for more details.

A single shift (all letters are shifted to the same value) is called Caesar Code.

A multiple shift, according to a key that is repeated (the letters are shifted from each of the key values), it is called Vigenere Cipherhref.

A mathematical shift, the easiest way is to shift the nth letter of the value n is the Trithemus Cipher or if the shift is more complex Affine Cipherhref or even Hillhref Cipher.

How to decrypt using Shift cipher?

Decryption requires knowing the shift used and the alphabet.

Take a letter in position N in the alphabet that has been encrypted by a shift of X, it must be shifted by -X to return to its original position N-X.

The letter H in position 8 in the alphabet ABCDEFGHIJKLMNOPQRSTUVWXYZ, will be decrypted from a shift of 3 in position 8-3=5 or E.
