00 What is Pollux?

The Pollux cipher is an encryption system that is based on Morse code and replaces the dots, hyphens and spaces with the digits 0-9.

The key consists of 10 characters (.-x, where x stands for the space), which are assigned to the digits 0 to 9.

The Morse code is then replaced by a digit with the corresponding Morse code character. For example, a Morse dot can result in a 3, 7 or 9.

The fact that a Morse code character is encoded in different characters makes the cipher homophonic.

The characters used are selected at random so that the cipher rate is different for each encryption.

For better readability, the cipher is often divided into groups of 5.
