The book by Helen Fouche Gains "Cryptanalysis - a study of ciphers and their solution" and the book by Sinkov "Elementary Cryptanalysis" both describe at great length how to break columnar transposition ciphers by hand. The columnar transposition is a suprisingly secure cipher when long keys are used (key words around length 20), but much. The book Wayne G. Barker: Cryptanalysis of the Double Transposition Cipher. Aegean Park Press, Laguna Hills contains a comprehensive tutorial. A computerized approach (often successful) is in George Lasry, Nils Kopal, Arno Wacker: Solving the double transposition challenge with a divide-and-conquer approach. Cryptologia 38 (), – The double transposition cipher was considered to be one of the most secure types of manual ciphers. It was extensively used in both World Wars and during the Cold War. The double transposition cipher was considered to be one of the most secure types of manual ciphers. It was extensively used in both World Wars and during the Cold War. In , Otto Leiberich, the former head of the German federal office for information security, suggested that a double transposition challenge be published with specific Cited by:

In the most comprehensive document about classical cryptanalysis of the double transposition cipher, Barker [1] presents several manual methods including solutions for special cases, multiple anagramming, and a known-plaintext attack. The most generic method is the rotating matrix.

(Folder ID: FOLDER ) Technical Paper by Solomon Kullback, PH.D., Junior Cryptanalyst of the Signal Intelligence Section, War Plans and Training Division, General Solution for the Double Transposition Cipher. One of those cipher systems is the Double Columnar Transposition Cipher (DCTC), The literature about the cryptanalysis of the DCTC is not that extensive. In most cases, like in the declassified documents of the NSA from (see books ISBN and ), special cases or known plaintext scenarios are discussed.

  wayne g. barker wrote a cryptanalysis of the double transposition cipher – includes problems and computer programs. The release date of the origin of his book is unknown. Anyway, former classified secret, in it was declassified by the NSA and a copy also furnished to the NARA. is a method for optimization that also can be successfully used for solving transposition ciphers. Here are some external links: Simulated Annealing. Crank (Cryptanalysis Toolkit). Also see the paper: J. P. Giddy, R. Safavi Naini, Automated Cryptanalysis of Transposition Ciphers. Computer Journal 37 (), – The Double Columnar Transposition was introduced to make cryptanalysis of messages encrypted by the Columnar Transposition more difficult. It was supposed to prevent anagrams of the plaintext words appearing in the analysed ciphertext. The main idea behind the Double Columnar Transposition . The classical columnar transposition cipher was the most popular type of transposition cipher. It was in use mainly during the second half of the nineteenth century and the first half of the twentieth century. It also served as a building block for more complex ciphers, such as the ADFGVX cipher and the double transposition : LasryGeorge, KopalNils, WackerArno.
