Crack this cipher.

Find me at Shmoocon 2015

Give me the decrypt and the meaning of the crypted text.

I will give you a two thousand year old Roman coin.

POST SHMOOCON PUZZLE DECRYPT 1/18/2015

For those who tried to solve this here are the particulars to the cryptogram

  • The crypted text was a Vigenere Cipher
  • The text was obfuscated
  • This was a tough one to solve because of the nature of the decrypted text. It would have been tough to determine through frequency analysis if there were any patterns because the text is random.

DECRYPT:

What is that? The decrypted text is the phonetic transcription of the E10 Numbers Station

What is a numbers station?

Maybe next year will be the lucky one for you…
