Thanks for visiting and today we have another OWASP Security Shepherd Solution for you. This time it’s the Insecure Cryptographic Storage Challenge. Cryptography is usually the safest way to communicate online but this method of encryption is not secure at all.
That’s all very straight forward. The key has been encrypted using Roman Cipher. This is incorrect, the correct term is Caesar Cipher. A Caesar Cipher takes a letter from the alphabet, say A, and use a number, like 5. This would change an A to an F, moving 5 places in the alphabet.
So we need to copy the cipher and go to a decoder that’s available online. We just need to paste the code into the decoder and try 5, 6, 7 places and so on.
https://www.dcode.fr/caesar-cipher easily does this for us.
We will leave out how many places in the alphabet that this cipher moves as we would like you to try it yourself. Another challenge down, check!!.
