Baconian encryption uses a substitution alphabet based on 2 letters (biliterary, usually A and B)
Example: DCODE is encrypted AAABB,AAABA,ABBAB,AAABB,AABAA
In this original alphabet, the letter V does not exist, it is replaced by U, likewise the letter J does not exist, it is replaced by I.
Another bacon's alphabet is sometimes preferred, more complete, it uses a unique code for each letter:
Baconian decryption is a substitution with the biliteral alphabet of Bacon.
Example: AAABB AAABA ABBAB AAABB AABAA is equivalent to DCODE.
The ciphered message is a biliterary code (binary with 2 letters), and maybe spaces every 5 characters.
All references to Françis Bacon (and its homonyms), Novum organum, or to bacon slices (pork, larding, smocked, salted, etc.) are clues.
The letters A and B can be replaced by others characters, such as 0 and 1, to transform the message into binary format.
Sometimes the letters o and l are used: lolol loolo lolol
Francis Bacon first described it around 1605
