Kids, you might need your parent’s help. They should know how do decrypt one time pad messages, but if they don’t, click this link to go to the One Time Pad posting.
I strongly recommend you download and print the One Time Pad – A Simplified Exercise by JJS. It will walk you through the steps for decrypting a message.
BELOW is your One Time Pad for decrypting the message for this contest. Keep it handy!
How to participate:
- Listen to Radio Free Redoubt Episode 15-41 or Partisan Radio, Volume 27. The secret coded message will be aired at the end of each podcast by [code name] Annie.
- Write the numbers down exactly.
- Use the ‘RALPHIE OTP’ above to decrypt the message. Don’t forget that the first set of five numbers in the message is your KEY ID. It should match up with the first set of numbers you’ll hear from [code name] Annie. You won’t add those numbers, since your message will begin with the second set of numbers.
- Once you’ve added those numbers, don’t forget to decode those numbers into letters using the conversion chart below:
5. Email the entire decrypted message to JohnJacob@RadioFreeRedoubt.com, and type ‘RALPHIE’ in the Subject line. Remember not to use your real name. Have an adult help you come up with a really cool Code Name. We’ll announce the winners’ code names during the show.
6. DEADLINE Entries must be received by 8pm Zulu Time the following Sunday, December 13th
7. Drawing will be held on Sunday evening, December 13th on Radio Free Redoubt, and will be repeated in Partisan Radio, Volume 28 on Monday, December 14th.
Winners will also be notified by email.
8. The audio file with the secret message will be uploaded here on Monday, December 7th, so you can practice all year round, even after the deadline for the contest has passed.
HAVE FUN! And Merry Christmas! Just don’t shoot your eye out!
