ROTOR MACHINE CIPHER IMPLEMENTATION
1) Using any programming language of your choice implement the encryption scheme
that uses a simple two cylinder rotor machine. It is not necessary to implement the
decryption scheme [50 marks] Please note that your submission is expected to run
on IRIS. Please ensure that you use a programming language that is compatible
with IRIS and also ensure the program can run on IRIS before submitting it
2) Specifications: The program should start by randomly generating the mappings for
the inner and outer cylinders, with the inner cylinder rotating faster than the outer
cylinder. You can use any data structure to implement the cylinders but a “map” data
structure is recommended.
The program should then prompt the user for an input string to encrypt. When the user
presses the enter, the program should validate and encrypt the input string. Validation
would mean that the string is well formed and is not a command. It should then output
the encrypted text and prompt the user for another text value. The cylinders should
update their state after each character encryption. At any time, the user should be able
to enter a predefined string to exit the program.
The program should also contain a sub-routine that prints out the current state of the
cylinders by entering a predefined command at the prompt. Example output might look
like:
Inner Cylinder
25 ↔ 4
6 ↔ 11
.
.
Outer Cylinder
13 ↔ 12
12 ↔ 24
.
.
In coding the above, please note the following
• White space, numeric and special characters should not be encrypted. Simply
output whitespace, numeric and special characters into the ciphertext
• You can write your code to be case insensitive – convert all input to lower case
3) What can you say about the computational complexity of your algorithm relative to
the size of the input string? [10 marks] Test 1 [10 marks] 1) Output the state of your cylinders.
2) Encrypt the string “A” and output its encrypted value.
3) Output the state of your cylinders.
Test 2 [15 marks] 1) Output the state of your cylinders.
2) Encrypt the string “EE” and output its encrypted value.
3) Output the state of your cylinders.
4) Is a rotor machine a monoalphabetic or polyalphabetic cipher? Comment based
on the results above.
Test 3 [15 marks] 1) Output the state of your cylinders.
2) Encrypt the string “Mr. Jock, TV quiz PhD, bags few lynx” and output its
encrypted value.
3) Output the state of your cylinders.
4) Comment on the state of your cylinders before and after encryption. Please
provide an explanation for what you observe.
Submission
1) Submit the following documents separately in Blackboard by the deadline. NO
ZIPPED FILES ALLOWED
1) All your code files
2) A detailed README file, which should explain how to run the code with sample
input and output. If you are unfamiliar with READMEs you can find an
introduction here https://www.makeareadme.com/ , here
https://medium.com/@meakaakka/a-beginners-guide-to-writing-a-kickassreadme-7ac01da88ab3 and here
Note that the README file you
submit for this project need not be complex, it only needs to at least explain how
to compile the code and run the code with examples. [5 marks] 3) A MAKEFILE that automates the building/compiling of your code. If you are
unfamiliar with Makefiles you can get a quick introduction here
and here
https://swcarpentry.github.io/make-novice/02-makefiles/. Note that the exact
structure of your makefile will depend on the programming language you are
using, so you may choose to find an example specific to you. The Makefile you
create for this assignment need not be complicated. It only needs to define the
TARGET, its DEPENDENCIES, if any and the COMMAND to create the target
executable. [5 marks] 4) A report (which should include your answer to Question 3 and your test results
with screen shots)
5) Note that your submission will be checked for plagiarism. All submissions with
verified plagiarism cases will be graded 0
