The DECRYPT Project: Automatic Decryption of Historical Manuscripts

The DECRYPT project builds the DECODE database with more than 3000 encrypted historical documents and keys and it develops computer-aided tools for automatic decoding of historical source material by using AI and cross-disciplinary research involving computational linguistics, cryptology, history, linguistics and philology. One of the tools used is CrypTool 2 which is integrated in a web-based workflow ranging from upload, transcription, linguistic and historical analysis, cryptanalysis, and feedback loops. The project is financed by the Swedish Research Council, grant 2018-06074 (2018-2024).

Deutsche Bank AG

CrypTool has been initially developed for the purpose of security awareness trainings within Deutsche Bank. After the initial requirements were met, Deutsche Bank handed CrypTool over to the opensource community. From the very beginning, Prof. Bernhard Esslinger was the main coordinator of the CrypTool project.

Center of Advanced Security Research Darmstadt (CASED)

Prof. Johannes Buchmann's research group "Cryptography and Computeralgebra" at TU Darmstadt develops the FlexiProvider library, an open-source Java library with cryptographic primitives and protocols. Further developments of the provider are accomplished in the context of the CASED research center and were integrated into BoucyCastle. Both, FlexiProvider and BouncyCastle, are used in JCrypTool.
