[click above for google form]

  1. For each challenge completed, please prepare a 1-2 page solution (Word or PDF format please) containing:
    •     Challenge number.
    •     Name(s) of all team members.
    •     Name of school.
    •     Complete plaintext solution.
    •     List of sources used in the cryptanalysis.
    •     A brief description of how your team arrived at the solution (1 page maximum).
  2. Use this google form to upload your solution.  Note: There are no automatic confirmation emails this year. 
  3. If you experience any difficulty with the online form, you may email solutions to boersmas@cwu.edu AND beaverc@wou.edu.  The subject should read "kryptos solution" and the body of the email should include team member names and school.  Your solution (Word or PDF) should be attached to the email.
  4. For tie-breaking purposes, the time a solution is submitted will be considered. So, be sure to submit your solutions as you solve each challenge!
  5. Solutions must be submitted by 4:00 p.m. (P.D.T) April 26.

New this year: It has become necessary for the Kryptos Codemasters to migrate over to Google Forms for both Registration and for Solution Submissions.  This will require at least one member of each team to have a google account. While we hope this transition is smooth, please be patient with us if we experience difficulties. 

If you have questions or experience difficiulties, feel free to contact Stuart Boersma at Stuart.Boersma@cwu.edu.
