Discovery/DecryptionEdit

  • Found on a whiteboard in the chapter Questionable Ethics
  • The message was encrypted using a SECOM Cipher, with a key of "LASER OPTRONIC LINEAR INDUCER CANNON" - found on a whiteboard in the game.
  • The SECOM cipher was determined from the Code C message (Extension of a VIC Cipher).

Decrypted MessageEdit

When decrypted, the message reads:

IT HAS COME TO MY ATTENTION THAT RESEARCH INTO POTENTIAL ALTERNATIVE BRIDGING METHODS MAY BE SUPPORTED BY THE INCLUSION AND APPLICATION OF THE LASER OPTRONIC LINEAR INDUCER ARRAY TO ACT AS AN AXIS MODULATOR FOR REGULATION AND FOCUSING AN UNKNOWN ENERGY FORM WAS DETECTED WHILST INVESTIGATING THIS HYPOTHESIS PLEASE USE CODE D 0914 TO COMPLETE THE SEQUENCE ON MY SITE

Uses for the clue + potential leadsEdit

Other InformationEdit

  • An additional clue pointing to the SECOM cipher was provided by Stormseeker. After user faed discovered a password protected area on Stormseeker's website (/wibble) [1], forum member CPU sent a private message to Stormseeker inquiring about it [2]. This is the reply he received [3]:
    Sorry, can't give you access to that one. Even though it looks like it, it really has nothing to do with the ARG. Congratulations though to the people solving stuff, you're all finally thinking outside the box. Obviously I would like to help further, but that would defeat the object of the game. Most people would have given up by now, which is a shame, you're all so very close to finding the answer.
    ---

    It's everywhere you look.
    After a week or so, user Gunsrequiem realized that Stormseeker's reply formed an acrostic, spelling out "SECOM" [4]. It was not long before Gunsrequiem finally solved the code [5].
  • Due to the original description of the SECOM cipher being somewhat unclear on an important step of the cipher algorithm, namely the calculation of the two transposition widths, the JavaScript implementation of the cipher written by one of the forum users was not able to decrypt the message, even though it seemed to work with the example message used in the description of the cipher. At the time, the only tool available that could successfully decrypt the message, was a tool written by the author of the aforementioned SECOM cipher description. However, it took a while before the existence of this tool was discovered.
