Abstract

In 1949 Shannon published the famous paper “Communication theory of secrecy systems” where he briefly described two ciphers, but did not investigate their properties. In this note we carry out information-theoretical analysis of these ciphers. In particular, we propose estimations of the cipher equivocation and the probability of correct deciphering without key.
