//Just a rant inspiried by another rant.
I doubt most people heard about steganography.
At least normal people (But we are not normal we are nerds and geeks).
I wont explain what it is thats what duckduckgo is here for(Yeah fuck Google).
Its used normally as good encryptin method to hide data in plain sigth.
Its just so awesome to get a image and after working on it you get message or anything the person hide in it.
Its also very much used in serius riddles (Do Not beleive his lies)(Also now im at level 48)
Its just damn fun.
If you like hard challenge and hard puzzles give it a go. At least you will learn something new and usefull.5
Idea: Hiding a 3D object in an image by making a list how often every color appears and then displaying that as density information in a 256³ cube (aka using a 3D histogram to encode a 3D object)18
I need some puzzles. FFS "Do not beleive his lies" holded me for 2 weeks and then i reached level 48.
I dont have anymore puzzles to solve.
If you create some good cryptography or steganography puzzle sent it to me.11
We can hide messages in images via steganography (or ZIP sewing), we can hide messages in sound via either sound-based transmission (like Morse) or waveform-based transmission (think oscilloscope art videos), we can transmit it in videos in like 300 different fucking combined forms...
Encryption isn't the ONLY way, yo. Social engineering and being a cheeky shithead can get it done too.3
OK it took me too long but well i was studying for school but since as you may know i love steganography and cryptography.
And so i have decided that i will start to solve Cicada 3301 2014 Liber Primus since its unsolved and there will be no new one until this one is solved and also im at 48 level of dnbhl and we are waiting just for mail.
So let the challenge begin !!!3
Looked up at the clock... 2 AM... Thought about giving up and going to sleep, but something kept me there...
Rewrote my encoder and decoder for my steganography program, which are used to insert and retrieve data respectively from images. Compiled, ran, and output was as expected!
Tried to write actual data, instead of just headers, to the image, and it broke... Of course it wouldn't work first try, it's me writing the code after all.
But then, after debugging for a while and changing a couple lines, the encoder looked like it had done its work properly. Then I decoded it, and voila, data completely recovered! It almost felt too magical to be true, usually I have to modify a lot more to get it working.
So now I'm in bed, after literally decimating the memory usage of the program, amongst other optimizations, and I know that the code works perfectly 😎 best part is I refactored each class down to 100 lines each, so now it's clean and dense 😇
Just had to share, feeling so good right now 😄2
