These bytes contain no visible patterns, entropy analysis results in a normalized value of 0.9285159, which is considered to be similar to that of a random data. Older ciphers do not result in this type of randomness in the encoded message, which means that a more sophisticated/modern cipher was probably used to encode this data.

Current TheoriesEdit

752

Hex Editor view of the code Download

  • Symmetric Block Cipher
    • DES, 3DES, Blowfish, Others
    • Possible password of "benalohpaillier" or "BENALOHPAILLIER"
  • one time pad?
  • speculation: "OTR//4.0" (see Stormseeker's Website) is a reference to the Off-the-Record Messaging protocol in version 4.0. This is unlikely though, since nearly all the previous clues used a similar header, and the current OTR protocol is only 3.0.

Debunked TheoriesEdit

  • Raw 1-bit (monochrome) or 8-bit (grayscale) pixel array
  • uuEncoded
  • Simple XOR [0-255] on each byte
  • 32-bit and 8-bit bit rotations
  • SSH Key. File length is too short, even with DSA/768.
  • encrypted with openssl

Pseudorandom number sequence test Edit

Entropy = 7.428127 bits per byte.

Optimum compression would reduce the size
of this 376 byte file by 7 percent.

Chi square distribution for 376 samples is 254.47, and randomly
would exceed this value 50.00 percent of the times.

Arithmetic mean value of data bytes is 115.1941 (127.5 = random).
Monte Carlo value for Pi is 3.096774194 (error 1.43 percent).
Serial correlation coefficient is -0.039323 (totally uncorrelated = 0.0).

Alternative Encodings Edit

Viewing the data in other encodings may be useful when importing into different software:

Other InformationEdit

  • User:Dr_Horn created the page Tempus omnia revelant (Time reveals all) after the trail on this problem went cold. Stormseeker then updated the forum thread's original post, adding the text 'tempus omnia revelant'. This seems to confirm that the Wikia account for Dr Horn is indeed Stormseeker.
    • The title of the page, Time reveals all, has later been referenced by Stormseeker on at least two separate occasions, where he said that time will indeed reveal all (see quotes).
  • Stormseeker later says on his Steam Profile:
    • "If it's about the ARG, I've not set up or had any sites setup for hacking, so no. There is an answer, but you can't brute force it, the CIA couldn't brute force it. Someone is already close."
  • Stormseeker teased encryption may not be the right idea. "How do you know solving this has anything to do with encryption?"
  • Stormseeker referred to this code puzzle as "HALOS FILE" instead of "752 Hex Code", as the players had come to call it, when he administratively updated the original forum post on December 11, 2012 (after a forum user complained that it was not up to date), suggesting a possible link to the HALOS files mentioned in the decoded message in IRC clue 5.
  • On December 10, 2012, Stormseeker edited/updated the first post of the forum thread (most likely in response to complaints that it was not up to date). Among the things he added was a bulleted list with the title "Handy Info":
    • Halos
    • BenallohPaillier
    • CongratulationsyouwonthePIZZA
    • BMRF.us (site down, due to unforseen circumstances)

    Given the fact that edit was done a month after the hex code puzzle was discovered, and two days before the arrival of the Tempus omnia revelant clue, it is possible that one or more of the items listed may be related to this puzzle.

  • In a private chat with forum user faed in January, 2015, referring to this puzzle, Stormseeker said something to the effect of: "It is an encrypted message that is decryptable."
  • The "BENALOHPAILLIER" password was first found in IRC clue 5. It was referenced again when Stormseeker included it in the "Handy Info" list he added to the original forum post, although with a slight misspelling. A third reference to this password was later found in the metadata of qecode.ogg (see Code C) in the Steam release of Black Mesa, which contained the following text:
    "Oh looky, Dr Horn has gone all open source. HALOS musn't see this, but the password to its area, is those two cryptographer peoples. I think you should get that ok. I'll be in Xen if you need me."
  • The 21 into 1 clue is believed to be relevant to this puzzle.
  • The phrase seek Code out he is watching, which was formed by italicized letters found on the Tempus omnia revelant page, could be a reference to a user named Code_, which was later confirmed to be a non player character created by the puppet master. A message sent from Code_ to forum user Gunsrequiem, where he details his theories regarding this puzzle, could therefore contain clues to this puzzle.
