Tip #1:

This is encrypted and compressed using popular/simple methods

Tip #2:

It is encrypted with AES in CBC mode PKCS7 padding, the last two lines are key and initialization vector

Tip #3:

The encrypted content is DEFLATE-compressed data

    $\begingroup$ The transcription has 0 at the bottom right instead of 254 (not that it makes any difference), also the last two rows are 24 numbers long, the third last is 19 if that helps anyone $\endgroup$ – somebody Jun 2 '17 at 2:46

    $\begingroup$ Yeah, I thought the same thing. I tried doing every third line (since equals signs typically mark the endings of base64-encoded information) but no luck. $\endgroup$ – Deusovi Jun 2 '17 at 12:20
  • $\begingroup$ That's the correct first step $\endgroup$ – Rômulo Gabriel Rodrigues Jun 7 '17 at 0:24
  • $\begingroup$ The original question had the intentional typo "aes", so the answer likely involves AES en/decryption. What's the key? The image is named "oC1EV.png" but I'm unsure if that should be used somehow. $\endgroup$ – MikeQ Jun 7 '17 at 2:23
  • $\begingroup$ All you need to decrypt is already in the transcription $\endgroup$ – Rômulo Gabriel Rodrigues Jun 8 '17 at 1:05
  • $\begingroup$ @RômuloGabrielRodrigues i guessed AES, but that one does not have "==" at the end. Plus AES has 24 different mods, and I don't even know what text should I put in there and if there is password or not. Plus I don't even know if that is AES or not, so there are thousands of possibilities what you mean with "popular method" and AES is obviously wrong. So far it is too general :/ $\endgroup$ – Jan Ivan Jun 13 '17 at 13:12

The text without line breaks can be analyzed to discover more details.

! As you may notice the last part has a subtle pattern of ==, so that represents the end of each base64 part, being content, 128 bit key and 128 bit IV in the same text block, so we can try to decrypt it. As I was trying to hint, it was encrypted with AES, the CBC and PKCS7 part are the rough part to discover as only CBC uses IV and with other block methods the padding would be wrong, the PKCS7 is a common used padding method and one of a few used with AES by default.

And... a little problem:

The result of decryption can be mistaken when trying to DEFLATE as said in hint, that's because the plus signs can be missed in the decryption. Adding them and decompressing using DEFLATE give us...

this weird data:

If you...

zoom out it's possible to notice that this is a QRCODE bin

So...

using Excel you could just qr

Using a...

QRcode reader you can read out the contents: "A riddle inside an enigma, a enigma inside a riddle"

And that's it.

And yeah, I noticed that I misspelled right there between those enigma

Sorry if I made this too hard and/or confusing, was just my first try. :(

I expect to get better at this to give you guys some puzzles to enjoy in the future.

    $\begingroup$ Most of it seems fine to me - if I had gotten to the "binary with 2s and 3s" step, I certainly would've solved it (and enjoyed it!). But that first step was a massive hurdle - AES encryption isn't very well-known here. $\endgroup$ – Deusovi Jun 14 '17 at 15:21

    $\begingroup$ Anyway, welcome to Puzzling! I hope to see more from you. c: $\endgroup$ – Deusovi Jun 14 '17 at 15:21
  • $\begingroup$ Thank you, I'll work on another one more interesting, simple and subtle :D (And yeah, it really went nuts when added AES encryption, just thought it would be too easy to just give the binary or compressed data) $\endgroup$ – Rômulo Gabriel Rodrigues Jun 14 '17 at 15:24

    $\begingroup$ Nice "rabbit-hole", however you could leave some "story" hints (Like: I worked in Advanced Energy Something group in 7th floor and blablabla). You are like me with first puzzle - I had too much believe in people :) Just place random hints around and people will figure that out if they wanted. $\endgroup$ – Jan Ivan Jun 14 '17 at 17:04
