On the Subject of The Inverted Black Cipher
Black as the world it came from, this cipher will be the end of you.
On the module, you will see 3 screens, a keyboard, 2 buttons with a letter on it, and a submit button that displays the current page you’re on.
Pressing the right arrow takes you to the next page. Pressing the left arrow takes you to the previous page. There is a total of 2 pages.
On page 1, the top screen shows a 6 letter encrypted word, the middle and bottom screens shows a word.
On page 2, the top screen shows a letter followed by 3 roman numerals, the middle screen shows 3 letters, and the bottom screen shows some letter pairs.
Step 1: Enigma Cipher
For this, you’re going to need the encrypted word from the top screen of page 1, and all 3 screens from page 2.
On page 2 of the module, you will see a configuration of the rotors/reflector, the rotors setup below that, and a plugboard setup on the bottom.
Step 1A: Configuration of the Rotors/Reflector/Plugboard
The screen at the top shows what type of rotors are used, the order they are in, and which reflector is used. Use the correct rotor charts and correct reflector chart to use to create an Enigma Decryptor.
They are read in this order: Reflector-Bottom Rotor-Middle Rotor-Top Rotor. Above the top rotor, you will type A–Z to use as the plugboard.
Use the schematic at the bottom to help you create the Enigma Decryptor.
The rotors below the screen shows what letter each one is at. Shift the letters until the bottom left letter is equal to the letter on the rotor.
For each pair of letters on the plugboard setup, switch the 2 letters positions on your plugboard.
