Cryptography Stack Exchange is a question and answer site for software developers, mathematicians and others interested in cryptography. It's 100% free, no registration required.

Is there any (free) software available to check for standard encryption algorithms such as the Caesar cipher? Advanced encryption algorithms such as RSA, DES, AES, etc. are not necessary.

What do you mean by check for ? To make a cracking attempt ? With cesar you need a veeery simple script, as to other, brute force soft there are plenty. –  fatfredyy Jan 6 '13 at 20:38
Yes, cracking attempt. I could write the software myself if I would have a dictionairy.. But please give a link to software download, brute force is cool, and submit as an answer so that I can accept it –  Camil Staps Jan 6 '13 at 20:47
Thanks a lot! If you submit it as an answer I can accept it! –  Camil Staps Jan 7 '13 at 7:34
Requests for software are definitely off topic on this site. Please see the FAQ. –  mikeazo Jan 7 '13 at 12:59
