Trithemius is a Java command line tool that implements Johannes Trithemius' simple polyalphabetic cipher. It can encipher and decipher input from the standard in or a file, and release the output to the standard out or a file.
- If you choose the same file as input and output, the file will simply end up empty, and there's no warning that this will happen
- Both input and output files must be readable and writable---but the input file should only have to be readable and the output writable
- I don't have access to Trithemius' original Polygraphiae text, so I'm not sure if enciphering and deciphering are shifting in the right directions
