Unicode is a computer coding system that aims to unify text exchanges at the international level. With Unicode, each computer character is described by a name and a code identifying it uniquely regardless of the computer medium or the software used. Unicode has already listed over 100000 characters.
Among the first Unicode characters are the 128 ASCII codes (including the Latin alphabet), then the international phonetic alphabet, then the local alphabets (Greek, Cyrillic, etc.), then symbols and many others...
A message encoded with Unicode is composed of numbers that are automatically translated to the screen in characters that can be displayed to the user (via UTF-8 or UTF16).
Unicode encryption can be made by displaying the Unicode codes of each of the characters in the message.
Example: The message DCΦD€ (the DCODE word with a letter phi Φ and a symbol euro €)
Each character is actually encoded in the form:
In order make the translation of a Unicode message, reassociate each identifier code its Unicode character.
Example: The message 68,67,934,68,8364 is translated by each number: 68 => D, 67 => C, and so on, in order to obtain DCΦD€.
UTF-8 is a 100% Unicode compatible coding system, which has the advantage of being backward compatible with ASCII. UTF8 is used on more than 90% of websites.
UTF-16 a 16-bit encoding variant, used by Windows. UTF-32 is another variant, still little used.
