Answers to Questions (FAQ)

What is a keyboard shift cipher? (Definition)

Keyboard shift is a substitution cipher method of replacing letters with others, whose position is shifted on a keyboard layout.

How to encrypt using Keyboard Shifting cipher?

Encryption uses a QWERTY or AZERTY keyboard layout, and shift each key with the one next to it.

Example: Encrypt DCODE with right shifting: D becomes F, C becomes V, etc. and the encrypted message is FVPFR

When there are no letters, use a punctuation key, or get to the other site or the keyboard.

The CTRL, ALT, SHIFT or TAB keys can be ignored or not.

How to decrypt Keyboard Shifting cipher?

Decryption is identical to encryption, but with an inverted direction: a right shifting becomes a left shifting.

How to recognize Keyboard Shifting ciphertext?

The ciphered message is composed only of keyboard keys. One key near to E appears the most.

What are the variants of the Keyboard Shifting cipher?

Multiple keyboard layouts and multiple shifting directions exist.
