wiki:CrypTool 2 Enhancements for HiCrypt

Version 5 (modified by kopal, 4 years ago) (diff)


The purpose of this site is to collect ideas and requirements for extending CrypTool 2 to support the HiCrypt community:

Extension ideas for CrypTool 2:

extend existing components:

  • language statistics for ALL classical cipher analyzers

German, English, French, Spanish <- already available Latin, Italian, Portuguese, Czech, Dutch, Greek, Hungarian, Icelandic, Slovene, Swedish [Bea] How to download additionally stuff not included in the installer? [Nils] Why do we need a lot of MB for good statistics? [@ask Eugen]

  • possibility of using different alphabets with all analyzers (mono alphabetic subst analyzer) [Armin]
  • fixing symbols during the analyses (interactive part) --> what did others? check! [Armin]
  • using different languages during analysis <- nice to have! multicheckbox
  • query Bea´s cipher database (DECODE) in CT2 [Nils] <- idea: open webpage using startcenter in ct2
  • add better transcription methods in CT2 -> nice to have! [Nils' student]
  • support UTF-8 with every component [Armin, Nils]
  • extend existing transcriptor with UTF-8 -> nice to have! [Nils]

add missing components:

  • homophone cipher analyzer [Armin]
  • codebooks/nomenclature analyzer (george?) [Nils]
  • component to detect type of cipher [long term] [clever person]

General questions

  • which type of cipher do we have to break? [Bea]
  • is CT2 suitable for historians? is it too difficult? [Test in workshop @ HistoCrypt]
