I'm all new to this and very interested, now I got a code that a buddy send me and just can't get anything out of it, he said he used 2 different enigmas to make it. Can any of you guys here help me with this code to crack it?
1. What Enigmas? 3 wheel, 4-wheel, combination of the two? 2.Steckered or unsteckered? 3.Which procedure, Wehrmacht, Luftwaffe, or Kriegsmarine U-boat (M4)? Or for that matter a combination? 4. Any cribs?
The problem with double encipherment is that you effectively double the key length or more. On a brute force attack you really don't have a clue when you have successfully stripped away the to encipherment since the result will still be a scrambled bunch of letter.
Without more clues, your message might as well have been randomly typed letter and otherwise meaningless. Sorry.
