Answers to Questions (FAQ)

What is the Wabun Code? (Definition)

The Wabun Code, sometimes called kana code, is a variant of the Morse code used to transmit Japanese text. It converts kana characters (hiragana and katakana) into signal sequences, a unique combination of dots (short signals) and dashes (long signals), thus facilitating communication using the Morse system.

How to encrypt using Wabun Code cipher?

Wabun Encryption uses a correspondence between kana and a Morse-like code. All words in latin alphabet are not available for ciphering, as Wabun is limited to these Japanese syllables/moras:

a, i, u, e, o, ka, ki, ku, ke, ko, sa, shi, su, se, so, ta, chi, tsu, te, to, na, ni, nu, ne, no, ha, hi, fu, he, ho, ma, mi, mu, me, mo, ya, yu, yo, ra, ri, ru, re, ro, wa, wi, n, we, wo, kya, kyu, kyo, sha, shu, sho, cha, chu, cho, nya, nyu, nyo, hya, hyu, hyo, mya, myu, myo, rya, ryu, ryo, ga, gi, gu, ge, go, gya, gyu, gyo, za, ji, zu, ze, zo, ja, ju, jo, da, ji, zu, de, do, ja, ju, jo, ba, bi, bu, be, bo, bya, byu, byo, pa, pi, pu, pe, po, pya, pyu, pyo

Example: To crypt DCODE, better use DE-KO-DE which is translated .-.-- .. ---- .-.-- ..

Texts written in Katakana / Hiragana are also accepted on dCode

How to decrypt Wabun Code?

Wabun Decryption is a substitution of morse codes in japanese characters (kanas).

Example: The ciphertext .-.-- .. ---- .-.-- .. has 3 characters .-.-- .. (DE ), ---- (KO ) and again .-.-- .. (DE ) so the original plain text is DCODE.

How to recognize Wabun Code ciphertext?

The message is normally composed of codes/signals similar to Morse (2 characters for - and . and another for separation).

Individual Wabun codes signals tend to be longer than International Morse code signals, as they encode multiple characters.

The overall signal length tends to be shorter, as Japanese is often more concise than other languages.

What are the variants of the Wabun cipher?

Wabun is already a variant or Morse Code. It is possible to use different characters to encode the morse (other than dot, dash, space).

It is also possible to decode the Morse code obtained as International Morse code, thereby creating an over-encryption.
