Atbash Porta

2. Installation

Simply put the following in your Cargo.toml.

ciphers = "0.1.0"

3. Example Usage

E.g. using the Vigenere cipher.

use ciphers::{Cipher, Vigenere};

fn main() {
    let vigenere = Vigenere::new("examplekey");

    // encipher
    let ctext = vigenere.encipher("someexampletexthere").unwrap();
    println!("ciphertext: {}", ctext);

    // decipher
    let ptext = vigenere.decipher(&ctext).unwrap();
    println!("plaintext:  {}", ptext);

4. To be Implemented

There are currently 6 different ciphers to be implemented.
