An associate of mine was recently arrested and is being detained in a prison in Ohio until his trial in a couple of weeks. He and I need to be able to communicate some, ummm, compromising information with each other while he's in prison. We know the telephones are monitored, and since I live in a different state, I can't visit him regularly in person. The prison does allow him occasional access to a computer that is restricted to email only, and he only gets a short amount of time to use it. Since we don't want any record of the information we're sending back and forth, we needed to come up with a simple encryption / decryption scheme that would hide the details of our communication, but allow us to discuss the situation easily. He has indicated he developed an appropriate scheme that he and I could both manage to work with for both encrypting and decrypting.
He said the name of the main witness was ywcbl95d and the evidence was in ecwryepug5. Can you help me determine what this means so I can figure out what to do? There was some additional specifics in the email I received from him, but I am thinking once I figure out how to decrypt it, I can figure out the rest myself.
Time is short, so once I take care of business, I need to respond immediately with a message indicating I've understood and that I'll meet up with him in Fort Wayne after he is released. We don't want the authorities to know where we're meeting though, so can you provide an encryption for "Fort Wayne" that I could send via email using the same scheme?
I can provide more text (i.e. more encryptions) from the email I received as needed. With the speed at which you all answer so many of the questions on this site, I'm trying to provide only minimal information to start. Hope this is an acceptable first puzzle from me! Feedback is welcome!
