Automated Cryptanalysis of Transposition Cipher Using Bees Algorithm


Transposition ciphers are a class of classical encryption algorithms based on rearranging units of plaintext according to some fixed permutation, which acts as the secret key. In this paper, we propose a cryptanalysis tool approach based on a population-based algorithm inspired by the honeybees forage for food called Bees Algorithm to break a transposition cipher. Experimental results demonstrate the applicability of algorithm for the cryptanalysis of transposition ciphers.
