The Rozier cipher is a variant of the Vigenère cipher. To encrypt a message, locate, in a square of vigenère, the column of the letter of the plain message, go down until you find the letter of the key, then move horizontally until you locate the letter that follows in the key, and finally go up horizontally to read the letter of the column which is the encrypted letter.
Example: To code ROZIER with the key DCODE, start with the first letter R by locating the column R, go down to D (first letter of the key), move on the line until find C (second letter of the key) and go up to read the name of the column Q which is the first encrypted letter. The complete coded message is QAOJDQ
Using Vigenère's square, locate the column of the Nth encrypted letter, go down until you find the letter in position N+1 of the key, locate on the line found the letter in position N of the key, and go up in the column to note the plain letter.
Example: To decode QAOJDQ encrypted with the key DCODE, start with the first letter Q by locating the column Q, go down to C (second letter of the key), move on the line until to find D (first letter of the key) and go up to read the name of the column R which is the first letter of the plain message. The full message is ROZIER
The Rozier cipher is a variant of Vigenere from which it takes all the cryptanalysis characteristics.
The notions of flowers, color, roses and the rosebush (Rozier homophone in French) are clues.
From a Rozier key, the Vigenère key is calculated as follows: for each letter in the Rozier key, calculate rank of the next letter - rank of the letter (modulo 26). The letter of the key corresponds to the letter in the alphabet with the calculated rank. (The rank is from A = 0, B = 1 ...)
Example: If Rozier's key is KEY (K is rank 10, E = 4, Y = 24)
(E-K)% 26 = (4-10)% 26 = 20 = U
(Y-E) % 26 = (24-4)% 26 = 20 = U
(K-Y)% 26 = (10-24)% 26 = 12 = M
The corresponding Vigenère key is UUM.
