I am pretty new to the cryptography scene but I wanted to know if it is possible to use crib dragging on cipher text which doesn't contain words? This data would be encrypted using the same key with a one time pad and the data is encoded using base64 before it is encrypted.
- key = [1, 2, 3, 4]
- message1 = [C, B, D, K]
- message2 = [H, K, L, U]
- encryptedMessage1 = [D, D, G, O]
- encryptedMessage2 = [I, M, O, Y]
(yes I know this isn't exactly base64)
So if we XOR these two encrypted messages together we may or may not get
HKLU based on the word used for cribbing and even if we do get one how can you verify that it is the correct message?
Again total noob and trying to teach myself. ;)
