I am trying to solve this problem but with no clue of what it actually means. Only thing i know is that it is solitaire cipher hidden message/key. enter image description here

  • $\begingroup$ For a solitaire cipher, a keystream is needed to decode. Without having the keystream, we can't do anything. $\endgroup$ – Deusovi Jun 8 '17 at 19:07
  • $\begingroup$ Keystream could be inside the message. This is the information given. $\endgroup$ – AESTHETICS Jun 8 '17 at 19:08
  • $\begingroup$ No, the message is not the same thing as the keystream. Where did you find this? $\endgroup$ – Deusovi Jun 8 '17 at 19:11
  • $\begingroup$ @Deusovi It's possible that the challenge of the puzzle is to identify the keystream. Maybe it's somehow in the email header? $\endgroup$ – MikeQ Jun 8 '17 at 19:16
  • $\begingroup$ What's the source of this? (And I think I have found the keystream - or at least, how to generate it - but I'd like to know where this is from.) $\endgroup$ – Deusovi Jun 8 '17 at 19:17
