Modulo Cipher Encryption uses modular arithmetics and a sequence of numbers, characters must be converted into numbers, e.g. A=1, B=2, ... Z=26, but any numeric conversion (like the ASCII table) is fine.
Example: To crypt DCODE with the modulo 26, convert the text to numbers 4,3,15,4,5.
Example: For $ 4 $, take $ 654 $, as $ 654 \equiv 4 \ mod 26 $
For $ 3 $, take $ 965 $, as $ 965 \equiv 3 \ mod 26 $.
The encrypted message is 654,965,561,732,941 (many other cipher message are possible)
Decryption requires to know the value of the Modulo and to know the series of number to decrypt.
Example: The encrypted message is 654,965,561,732,941with the modulo 26.
For each number N, calculate the value of the remainder in the euclidean division of N by the modulo to get the plain number.
Example: The plain text is 4,3,15,4,5, that can be translate into DCODE with A=1, B=2, ...
The ciphered message is constituted of somehow large random numbers.
The Affine cipher use modulo in the calculation $ C = a \times P + b \ mod 26 $
