Cryptohack - Hex [5 pts]

The Solution is shared considering CAN I SHARE MY SOLUTIONS? Problem When we encrypt something the resulting ciphertext commonly has bytes which are not printable ASCII characters. If we want to share our encrypted data, it’s common to encode it into something more user-friendly and portable across different systems. Included below is a flag encoded as a hex string. Decode this back into bytes to get the flag. 63727970746f7b596f755f77696c6c5f62655f776f726b696e675f776974685f6865785f737472696e67735f615f6c6f747d...

Cryptohack- XOR Starter [10 pts]

The Solution is shared considering CAN I SHARE MY SOLUTIONS? Problem XOR is a bitwise operator which returns 0 if the bits are the same, and 1 otherwise. In textbooks the XOR operator is denoted by ⊕, but in most challenges and programming languages you will see the caret ^ used instead. A B Output 0 0 0 0 1 1 1 0 1 1 1 0 For longer binary numbers we XOR bit by bit: 0110 ^ 1010 = 1100....
