To get you started why not take a look through some of my essays:
- Cryptography for beginners
- Steganography for beginners
- Deciphering Caesar
- Frequency Analysis
- Katydid Experiment
Plus an essay an 'original' way of hiding information (original in the sense I can't find anything about it on the web) which I thought of in the bath - a kind of Eureka moment:
KRONOS(i): A set of challenges that guide you through the world of cryptography from 1900bc to 1553.
Below are two links to challenges, the first are quite simple and require pure cryptography and steganography skills, whereas A-Command draws on a few other areas, which I hope you will enjoy. In A-Command you assume the role of Captain of Cryptography and Steganography which is about to get tough so why not give it a go?
- BINmap Executable (Including C source)
- Useful Links
BINmap is a small program written by me to hide files in BMP pictures by adjusting the LSB (least significant bit) and comes with instructions and all source files.
Plus, it is soon to have a new skin with a friend of mine writing a GUI (much appreciated BTW). As with everything on my site, use anything free of charge and pass it around as much as you can, but if you improve something please let me know for my own interest.
