7 Classification of Cryptographic Methods 25 sition. These are the two basic elements of cryptography proper. We shall introduce them in the next chapter. Steganography also reveals an important maxim: natural language—spoken, written, or in gestures—has its own particular rules, and it is even harder to imitate them (as in steganography) than to suppress them (as in cryptography). Linguistic steganography is therefore treated with caution by pure cryptographers; it is a censor’s job to combat it.

The terminological boundary between ‘cipher’, ‘encipher’, ‘decipher’ and ‘code’, ‘encode’, ‘decode’ is fuzzy and essentially determined by historical usage (see also Sect. 4). The terms ‘cipher’ and ‘code’, and more generally ‘crypt’, are also used for the elements of W (mi ) . 1 An encryption X = [χi1 , χi2 , χi3 , . . ] , finitely generated by M , is called monoalphabetic if it comprises or uses a single encryption step (‘alphabet’). Otherwise it is called polyalphabetic. If M is a singleton (θ = 1) , then every encryption generated by means of M is monoalphabetic.

Speaking of homophones and variants (also optional substitutes, multiple substitutes) and of nulls (also dummies, French nonvaleurs, German Blender, Blindsignale, Trugchiffren), usually those of the encryption step are meant. If the cryptotext character set of the encryption step contains words of different length, the encryption step is called “straddling” (German gespreizt). A generated encryption is not necessarily injective, even if the generating encryption steps are: 6 Every x ∈ V ∗ is taken to be suitably filled up by meaningless symbols.
