Python and the Vigenere Cipher

The Vigenere cipher is a polyalphabetic substitution cipher system designed by Giovan Battista Bellaso and improved upon by Blaise de Vigenere. It functions very similarly to a Caesar shift cipher where a shift of lettering occurs. Unlike the Caesar shift cipher the Vigenere cipher performs different shift per character. For example the first letter may…

I recently started learning Python and have created a small script which can encrypt or decrypt plaintext or cipher text from a Caesar Shift Cipher. It’s nothing special but I’m curious as to how much easier it can be accomplished….
