# Pollux Cipher

## Answers to Questions (FAQ)

### How to encrypt using Pollux cipher?

Pollux's encryption uses Morse code and a tomogrammic over-encryption that replaces dashes and dots from Morse by other characters.

The coding of Morse characters can be numeric, alphabetical or alphanumeric

Example:

Dot (.) 0,4,7 1,5,8 2,3,6,9

Example:

Dot (.) 0378AEFMOPQXYZ 145BCGJNRTW 269DHIKLSUV

Example: Encrypt CASTOR by writing it in Morse then transcode:

Plaintext C A S T O R -.-. .- ... - - - .-. 4PGM9F1VQEMHCUB1B28BP

The character is randomly selected from the list of proposed characters.

### How to decrypt Pollux cipher?

Pollux decryption requires the knowledge of the correspondence between the numeric / alphanumeric characters and the dashes / points / spaces from the Morse code.

Example: Decrypt 78559590317270898307655205347035412184970 from the table

Dot (.) 0,4,7 1,5,8 2,3,6,9

Example: The corresponding Morse code is -... . - .- / --. . -- .. -. --- .-. ..- -- and the plain message is 'BETA GEMINORUM' (the scientific name of the Pollux star)

### How to recognize Pollux ciphertext?

A Pollux encrypted message will have a minimum coincidence index (due to polygrammic encrption and the characters chosen randomly). Cryptanalysis is therefore very difficult.

Morse should not have 2 consecutive spaces and long series of dashes or dots (more than 10) are rare. Also the text should not start with space because the first space character should be in position 2, 3, 4 or even 5.

Any reference to mythology, Dioscuri (Castor and Pollux) is a clue.

Any reference to the Manège Enchanté (French TV series, with Pollux the dog) is a clue.

### When Pollux have been invented ?

No creation date is known
