Answers to Questions (FAQ)

What is Twin Hex cipher? (Definition)

Twin Hex cipher is an encryption algorithm that uses ASCII bigrams/character pairs to convert them into alphanumeric trigrams.

How to encrypt using Twin Hex cipher?

The Twin Hex encryption process only works on printable ASCII characters (codes 32 to 127).

Example: Encrypt the dCode message

Each pair of characters (bigram) is then indexed according to its rank among possible bigrams (the first bigram with codes 32,32 has the value $0$, then 32,33 has the index $1$, up to '127,127 ' which has a value of $9216). If the message is odd in length, complete with a space.

Example: dC has index $ 6563 $, od has index $ 7652 $ and e (a space has been added) has index $ 6624 $.

The index is then converted to base36 (symbols 0123456789abcdefghijklmnopqrstuvwxyz) optionally supplemented by spaces (on the right) to obtain a trigram.

Example: $ 6563_{(10)} = \texttt{52b}_{(36)} $ (see the page dedicated to base n conversion)

The concatenation of the trigrams obtained forms the encrypted message.

Example: dCode is encrypted in Twin Hex as 52b5wk540

How to decrypt Twin Hex cipher?

To decipher Twin Hex ciphertext, the decryption process begins by breaking the text into trigrams.

Example: Decrypt the message 3x35gu14 56g

Each trigram is then considered as a base36 number whose decimal value corresponds to an index among the possible ASCII bigrams.

Example: $ \texttt{3x3}_{(36)} = 5079_{(10)} $ and $ 5079 $ corresponds to the bigram Tw
$ \texttt{5gu}_{(36)} = 7086_{(10)} $ and $ 7086 $ matches the bigram in, etc.

The plain message consists of the concatenation of the bigrams obtained.

Example: The original message is 'Twin Hex'

How to recognize a Twin Hex ciphertext? (Identification)

Twin Hex is made up of lowercase alphanumeric characters a-z0-9 (default).

The indication twin or jumeau is a clue.
