This is a Python program to solve K4 of Jim Sanborn’s “Kryptos” sculpture, which is located at CIA headquarters in Langley, Virginia. Some resources:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kryptos (Wiki page for the sculpture) http://patrickkellogg.com/kryptos/ (My introductory slide decks on cryptography) https://github.com/patrickkellogg/Kryptos (GitHub code for this project)
Download the Python code and associated files, and run them on your local machine.
This program needs the following files: k4.py words.txt

Create a directory for the krypton code, and copy the two necessary files.
~ $ mkdir kryptos ~ $ cp k4.py kryptos/ ~ $ cp words.txt kryptos/
To run the program, use the python interpreter, and redirect the output to a file if desired.
~/kryptos $ python k4.py > outputfile
