Kryptos fans, as we finish the year, let’s play with a little thought experiment.
It might help folks clear their brains of the cluttered and dusty concepts they’ve been pounding away at. We all attack Kryptos’ K4 from the side of decryption. It might be worthwhile to examine the troubles of encryption. Think of a 2-step encryption method to encipher a 100 letter sentence. The only rules are #1 it must make frequency analysis useless, #2 it can only involve keywords or hints from the rest of Kryptos, #3 it must be solvable with pencil and paper, #4 it must be solvable.
