Tool to decrypt/encrypt Bacon automatically. Bacon cipher uses a biliteral substitution alphabet which replace a character with a group of 5 formed with two letters, generally A and B.

**Baconian** encryption uses a substitution alphabet (no letter J or V) based on 2 letters (A and B)

A | AAAAA | B | AAAAB |
---|---|---|---|

C | AAABA | D | AAABB |

E | AABAA | F | AABAB |

G | AABBA | H | AABBB |

I=J | ABAAA | K | ABAAB |

L | ABABA | M | ABABB |

N | ABBAA | O | ABBAB |

P | ABBBA | Q | ABBBB |

R | BAAAA | S | BAAAB |

T | BAABA | U=V | BAABB |

W | BABAA | X | BABAB |

Y | BABBA | Z | BABBB |

Example: DCODE is encrypted AAABB,AAABA,ABBAB,AAABB,AABAA

Another **bacon**'s alphabet is sometimes preferred, it uses a unique code for each letter:

A | AAAAA | B | AAAAB |
---|---|---|---|

C | AAABA | D | AAABB |

E | AABAA | F | AABAB |

G | AABBA | H | AABBB |

I | ABAAA | J | ABAAB |

K | ABABA | L | ABABB |

M | ABBAA | N | ABBAB |

O | ABBBA | P | ABBBB |

Q | BAAAA | R | BAAAB |

S | BAABA | T | BAABB |

U | BABAA | V | BABAB |

W | BABBA | X | BABBB |

Y | BBAAA | Z | BBAAB |

**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 bilitary code (binary with 2 letters), and maybe spaces every 5 characters.

The letters A and B can be replaced by others characters, such as 0 and 1, to transform the message into binary format.

Francis **Bacon** first described it around 1605
