Encrypted Messaging Using Pigpen Codes

Wanna keep all the secrets in a message that nobody understands? Or sending an encrypted message to others that only the few would know? If that was the case, it was time to introduce to this decipher technique used by Freemasons. That is, the pigpen code.


An example of a pigpen code.

Codes of all types are specially designed by a specific group of people so that the message are keep encrypted and for those who attempt to intercept it will simply cannot read it immediately and understand the message within the coded text. There are many kinds of codes, ranging from simple codes that are easily made out by jumbling letters and numbers to complicated enigma codes made by Germans for their u-boat commanders through out the Second World War. In this case, the Pigpen codes, also called the masonic cipher, is one of the best-made codes in recent history.


The Pigpen Cipher, also known as the masonic cipher, was used by Freemasons throughout the 18th Century to keep their obtained records as private as possible. The cipher in itself does not substitute one letter for another; but rather it substitutes each letter for a symbol. The alphabet is written in the grids shown, and then each letter is enciphered by replacing it with a symbol that corresponds to the portion of the pigpen grid that contains the letter. And like those enigma codes, this cipher can be scrambled all across at the disposal of the user varying on the message it gives and the corresponding code arrangement in a way that only few persons are aware of it. So as for the message, it will be kept secured until somebody decided to decipher it instead.


If it was for technologies, such codes will be used immediately, at the disposal of cipher-decipher sites like CRYPTII and THE BLACK CHAMBER.

But for the sake of those who wanted to do it manually, take this thing for instance...

a b c d e f g h I j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z
a b c d e f g h I j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z
a b c d e f g h i j k l m n o p q r s t u v w x y z

The following letters and codes there were different fonts that is used here. First is the masonic cipher font, then Trebuchet MS, then lastly some scrambled matter of the pigpen. As per observation, it is ascertain that a person will scramble it all over, write a message over it and keep it as a record or send it to some subordinates or other party without any threat of compromising the message itself from those who attempt to intercept it. With such codes, it is possible to have secrets sealed and as well having messages secured for a longer terms of time.


Codes are communication techniques that is kept from the many and is used by the few so as not to compromise things that are kept in operation like those military folks would have done. Furthermore, the Freemasons of the 18th century somewhat done their own coding system that only a fellow will only know about the topics that are well kept within the organization. And that coding system is just one of the codes contributed for the sake of many people's knowledge. As per this, many people who are either secretive, secured or somewhat wanted to be safe of themselves either write a diary using pigpen, or writing some embedded messaging for someone using such code, or having it as a record tool like the masonic people done. And it will all be beneficial for anybody to somewhat read this code that they themselves will take this code and write it as their own.
