Caesar and Vigenere Ciphers

Image result for ciphers


This page was very useful and I found it very illustrative for both ciphers.

In class and because I was in a hurry I did a pretty bad Vigenere with matrices and confusing indexing. I had to exploit more the python language and use more of its features so I came up with the following functions for encrypting and encrypting. I also did an additional method called ‘getShiftedArray’ in order to shift the alphabet and continue with the indexing of each letter in reference to it.

This ended up being very handy for both ciphers. The function only does the splitting from shift point to the right and from shift point to the left, the concatenation of both lists into one list does the final encryption table reference.

Both ciphers can be encountered in my github repository
