Summary

### How to encrypt using keypad drawing cipher?

Encryption with a numeric keypad consists of drawing each character via a 3x3 (or 3x4) dot matrix symbolized by the keypad itself (the numbers pad usually to the right of the keyboard).

Example: To encrypt the letters D,C,O,D,E, imagine using the numeric keypad of a computer and the keys 78 | 89 | 789 | 78 | 7894 5 | 4 | 4 6 | 4 5 | 45 12 | 23 | 123 | 12 | 123

The order of the keys is usually not important, but can help to recognize the drawn character.

Example: D can be encoded 124578

The computer numeric keypad and mobile/cell phone keypad have inverted digits (123 is at the bottom for one and at the top for the other one). The phone mode also accepts the characters * (star), 0 (zero) and # (pound). The other keys are ignored (Num lock, +, -, *, /).

### How to decrypt keypad drawing cipher?

Decryption requires the knowledge of the numeric keypad used and to note the keys in order to deduce the drawing of a character.

Example: From the message 1478965,14789635,147862, can be infered the drawings: 789 | 789 | 78 456 | 456 | 4 51 | 1 3 | 12  thus, the plain message is PAD.

### How to recognize a keypad ciphertext?

The message consists of the characters of a numeric keypad, namely 123456789*0#
