Brute Force Caesar Cipher V2 (Python)

Python Brute Force Caesar

Around a month ago I used Python to brute force the Caesar Cipher (I blogged about it here: https://geektechstuff.com/2019/12/22/brute-force-caesar-cipher-python/). My original solution outputted a solution for each possible cipher shift, which worked ok for small text samples but for larger texts started to take up a large portion of the terminal and my time scrolling. … Continue reading Brute Force Caesar Cipher V2 (Python)

Instant Messaging App With Vigenère Encryption (Python)

Python Instant Messaging With Vigenere Cipher

Over the last few weeks I have been looking at ciphers and encryption, which has included a Python program to brute force the Caesar cipher, Python to encrypt / decrypt with the Vigenère cipher , some Morse code and RSA Public Keys. With my recent looks into encryption, especially the look into the Vigenere Cipher, … Continue reading Instant Messaging App With Vigenère Encryption (Python)

RSA Public-Key Cryptography (Python)

My Python program successfully encrypts ASCII A (65) to a different value (41) and back again.

I am currently undertaking the "Encryption & Cryptography" course on FutureLearn (https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/encryption-and-cryptography/) and looking at public-key cryptography, specifically today the RSA public-key method. RSA is named after Ron Rivest, Adi Shamir and Leonard Adleman (Rivest-Shamir-Adleman; RSA) and the details for the algorithm were first published in 1977. English mathematician, Clifford Cocks developed a similar system … Continue reading RSA Public-Key Cryptography (Python)

Jenkins – Connecting To GitHub and some Python

Welcome to Jenkins!

Jenkins is a tool to help with Continuous Integration /  Continuous Delivery (CI / CD). I originally looked at installing Jenkins as a Java web app on my Raspberry Pi during this post: https://geektechstuff.com/2019/05/26/installing-apache-tomcat-jenkins-raspberry-pi/ . I am now hoping to expand a little bit more on using Jenkins by building a freestyle project that connects to … Continue reading Jenkins – Connecting To GitHub and some Python
