Answers to Questions

How to encrypt using Bacon cipher

Baconian encryption uses a substitution alphabet based on 2 letters (biliterary, usually A and B)

AAAAAABAAAAB
CAAABADAAABB
EAABAAFAABAB
GAABBAHAABBB
I=JABAAAKABAAB
LABABAMABABB
NABBAAOABBAB
PABBBAQABBBB
RBAAAASBAAAB
TBAABAU=VBAABB
WBABAAXBABAB
YBABBAZBABBB

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:

AAAAAABAAAAB
CAAABADAAABB
EAABAAFAABAB
GAABBAHAABBB
IABAAAJABAAB
KABABALABABB
MABBAANABBAB
OABBBAPABBBB
QBAAAARBAAAB
SBAABATBAABB
UBABAAVBABAB
WBABBAXBABBB
YBBAAAZBBAAB

How to decrypt Bacon cipher

Baconian decryption is a substitution with the biliteral alphabet of Bacon.

Example: AAABB AAABA ABBAB AAABB AABAA is equivalent to DCODE.

How to recognize a Bacon ciphertext?

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.

What are the variants of the Bacon cipher?

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

When Bacon cipher have been invented?

Francis Bacon first described it around 1605
