This is a list of types of ciphers that are encrypted with their own ciphers. If a given cipher requires a key, then the cipher is the key as well. Also these are all actual ciphers, not methods to crack them like "frequency analysis". It will require some brute-force, but they are all classically well-known ciphers and I believe most will be easy and some even trivial. This is posed as a challenge who can get them all first and also a good resource for newcomers wanting to learn some basic ciphers commonly used. Good luck!

1) EBG GUVEGRRA
2) #~%\cf
3) QQMIAIII
4) MGAARNA
5) LAYFPYRB
6) 01100010 01101001 01101110 01100001 01110010 01111001 01110100 01101111 01110100 01100101 01111000 01110100

  • $\begingroup$ "So feel free to comment a cipher that is self-encrypted and I will try to solve it and then add it." This is called "moving the goalposts": you shouldn't change the answer to a puzzle after it's posted. $\endgroup$ – Deusovi Mar 23 '18 at 5:21
  • $\begingroup$ (Also, I've downvoted because this seems to be low-effort. As you said, pretty much all of these are trivial, and this puzzle could easily be made by scanning through Rumkin or dcode.fr's lists and encrypting all of them. I would highly recommend not using solely ciphers if you want to make a high-quality puzzle - or not using ciphers at all, even.) $\endgroup$ – Deusovi Mar 23 '18 at 5:23
  • $\begingroup$ Thanks for the input. I thought it was worth the shot, but I see your point. $\endgroup$ – tyobrien Mar 23 '18 at 5:24
  • $\begingroup$ For what it's worth, here's another puzzle that uses the same premise, but is more elaborate (and definitely was more challenging). $\endgroup$ – M Oehm Mar 23 '18 at 8:13

The ciphers are:

1. ROT THIRTEEN

2. ROT-47

3. VIGENERE

4. ANAGRAM (not a cipher...)

5. PLAYFAIR

6. binarytotext
