### XOR and key reuse [duplicate]

I've been doing a bit of reading on the use of XOR and the dangers of key reuse. I'm aware that reusing a key can open a door for a frequency analysis attack on my plain text. So far, everything ...

### Two-timing a one-time pad [duplicate]

Is a one-time pad still breakable on a depth of 2+ if the plaintext is completely random? I'm assuming this idea is wrong, mostly because it occurred to me, but let me walk you through my logic so ...

### How can I find the original message of two encrypted (Vernam Cipher) text without the key [duplicate]

Can I get the steps or the solution if possible?
