On the Subject of the Maroon Cipher
I bet you will feel like a maroon trying to tackle this cipher.
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 3 pages.
On page 1, the top screen shows a 6 letter encrypted word, the middle screen shows some numbers, and the bottom screen shows a 3 letter key.
On pages 2 and 3, all 3 screens shows a word.
Concatenate the words in this order: Page 2 Top Screen, Page 2 Middle Screen, Page 2 Bottom Screen, Page 3 Top Screen, Page 3 Middle Screen, Page 3 Bottom Screen. Remove any duplicate letters from the key (keeping each letter’s first occurrence). This will be referred to as the Alphabet Key.
Step 1: Monoalphabetic Cipher
For this, you're going to need the encrypted word on the top screen and the Alphabet Key.
Write a 2nd alphabet underneath the Alphabet Key.
For each letter of the encrypted word, find the letter in the Alphabet Key and replace it with the letter directly below it.
The resulting letters will become your new encrypted word.
Encrypted Word: MZJBFE
MZJBFE -> XDSZIG
New Encrypted Word: XDSZIG
