Use a two-stage transposition technique to encrypt the following message using the key “Decrypt”. Ignore the comma and the period in the message.
Message: “The Transposition cipher technique works by permuting the letters of the plaintext. It is not very secure, but it is great for learning about cryptography.”
In a 3–4 page summary, discuss the following:
- Is it possible to decrypt the message with a different key? Justify your answer.
- Do you agree with the statement of the message? Why or why not? Give at least two examples that support your view.
