TO CIA: KRIPTOS K4 POSSIBLE SOLUTION BASED IN THE SITE OF A COMPASS ROSE (Berlin Clock) part 4

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

K4

K 4 is part of a sculpture called Kryptos, created by DC artist James Sanborn. 

Sanborn named his proposal after the Greek word for hidden. When Sanborn received his commission from the CIA, he had no experience in codes, but he learned quickly from retired CIA cryptographer Ed Scheidt.

The work is a meditation on the nature of secrecy and the elusiveness of truth, its message written entirely in code:  865 characters of seeming gibberish, punched out of half-inch-thick copper in a courtyard.

Sanborn finished the sculpture in time for a November 3, 1990 dedication.  A photo of "Kryptos" appears on the CIA's Website and describes it "as a piece of petrified wood supported by a large S-shaped copper screen that looks like a piece of paper coming out of a computer printer. On the 'paper' are inscribed several enigmatic messages, each written in a different code."

The sculpture has seen three of its four sections solved, revealing evocative prose that only makes the puzzle more confusing: 

FEBRUARY 1998, The first code breaker, a CIA employee named David Stein, spent 400 hours working by hand on his own time to crack section K1. Sixteen months later, Jim Gillogly, an LA-area cryptanalyst used a Pentium II computer and some custom software to crack the three sections K1, K2 & K3.

..... But NSA Cracked the Kryptos Sculpture Years Before the CIA. http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2013/07/nsa-cracked-kryptos-before-cia/


Still uncracked are the 97 characters of the fourth part (known as K4 in Kryptos-speak).

People say Sanborn intentionally made K4 much harder to crack, hinting that the plaintext itself is not standard English and would require a second level of cryptanalysis. Misspellings and other anomalies in previous sections may help. Some suspect that clues are present in other parts of the installation: the Morse code, the compass rose, or perhaps the adjacent fountain.

The official story is that Sanborn shared the answer with only one person, the CIA director at the time, William Webster. Indeed, the decoded K3 text reads in part, "Who knows the exact location only ww." Sanborn has confirmed that these letters refer to Webster . And in 1999, Webster himself told The New York Times that the solution was "philosophical and obscure."

But Sanborn also claims that the envelope he gave Webster didn't contain the complete answer. "Nobody has it all," he says. "I tricked them."

THE CLUES & MISTAKES

+ It will be the first clue Sanborn has revealed in four years, after he corrected a typo in his sculpture in 2006 to keep crypto detectives from being derailed in their search for solutions.

Sanborn wouldn’t disclose the clue to Threat Level but said only cryptically that it will “globalize” the sculpture. Asked if this meant it would take the sculpture off the CIA grounds and out of the United States, he conceded it would. “I personally think it’s a significant clue,” he said. “I’m throwing it out there. It just makes that many fewer characters people have to figure out.”

+ All of these early attempts to solve Kryptos found that K2 ended with WESTIDBYROWS, but in 2006, Sanborn announced that he had made an error in K 2, which changed the last part of the plaintext from WESTIDBYROWS to WESTXLAYERTWO.

When commenting in 2006 about his error in section 2, Sanborn said that the answers to the first sections contain clues to the last section. In November 2010, Sanborn released another clue: Letters 64-69 NYPVTT in  K 4 encode the text BERLIN.

FIRST ATTEMPT: CLUE "BERLIN"



On Thursday, November 20th, 2014 the New York Times revealed another clue from Jim Sanborn about Kryptos K4.
http://www.nytimes.com/2014/11/21/us/another-kryptos-clue-is-offered-in-a-24-year-old-mystery-at-the-cia.html
This new clue proves me wrong but this was my finding before knowing this new information: 



POSSIBLE SOLUTION OF K4 BASED IN THE PLACE OF "BERLIN".


+ iF Letters  64-69  "NYPVTT"  in  K 4 encode the text "BERLIN" then......,

So, Seaborn sculpted a small fragment of one of the most important speeches of Ronald Reagan (and "GLOBALIZE" the sculpture).

----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

THE FRAGMENT

http://www.historyplace.com/speeches/reagan-tear-down.htm

 —Ronald Reagan, address at the Brandenburg Gate, June 12, 1987.


----------------------------------------------------------------------------
----------------------------------------------------------------------------

MY THEORY

+ NOTE: I do not know the name of the coding system used. This has been a labor of deduction.

01. STEP
+ IF  The third passage (K3)  paraphrases, with an intentional misspelling (or not), is the account of Howard Carter, the renowned Egyptologist, as he opened King Tut’s tomb. Then the fourth part can be a real text, not invented. And is related to "Berlin".

02. STEP
+ IF K4 is a real text, then  i should find key phrases/quotes related to Berlin (place) or Isaiah Berlin (man)
 http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_quotes_featuring_Berlin (by example)

03. STEP
.+ Then I look for the most important and beautiful texts,texts related to the reason for being of the sculpture (The work is a meditation on the nature of secrecy and the elusiveness of truth) , by example:
http://www.historyplace.com/speeches/jfk-berliner.htm
http://www.americanrhetoric.com/speeches/ronaldreaganbrandenburggate.htm

......and text like a ANSWER because there (K3) is a QUESTION: 
K3   ......Can you see anythingq? (I suppose "q" means "question")
K4  People to create a safer, freer world and surely ...... ( the reply is so beautiful !!!)

04. STEP
+ And find a text that fits into the 97 letters and the position of "Berlin" (64 to 69)

Another clue;  Seaborn sculpted a small fragment of one of the most important speeches of Ronald Reagan (and so "GLOBALIZE" the sculpture, he said). .

05. Finally 
I hope someone naming the encryption system used by the artist because I do not know this ( with an intentional misspelling or not ).

--------------------------------------------------------------------------SECOND ATTEMPT: CLUE "BERLINCLOCK" + DEC  2014


NEWS

+ Mr. Sanborn has decided to open the door a bit more with five additional letters, those in the 70th through 74th position.This means that the letters from positions 64 to 74 spell out two words: “Berlin clock.”

When asked whether his new clue was a reference to this Berlin clock, Mr. Sanborn, sounding pleased, said, “There are several really interesting clocks in Berlin.”

He added,
“You’d better delve into that particular clock,”

MY FAVORITE CLOCK OF BERLIN

A strange clock of Berlin and Kryptos, the  CIA sculpture have something in common in their base: A COMPASS ROSE  engraved:

The Atomic Clock (Weltzeituhr) was designed by Erich John and erected in 1969 in Alexander Platz, East Berlin. It's original name was Urania World Time Clock, also called Die Urania by Berlin citizens.

 THE NEW WAY  "The Clock cryptograph"
I found a cipher that appears related to the clues of the sculptor
: "The Clock cryptograph" is basically a nicely implemented Wheatstone cipher disk

The Wadsworth's cipher was a cipher invented by Decius Wadsworth, a Colonel in the Ordnance Corps of the United States Army. In 1817, I developed a progressive cipher system based on a 1790 design by Thomas Jefferson, Establishing a method That was improved upon and used Continuously Until the end of World War II (by the Danish army).

http://www.jproc.ca/crypto/crypto_watch.html
Wadsworth's system involved a set of two disks, one inside the other, where the outer disk had the 26 letters of the alphabet and the inner disk had only the 26 letters
arbitrarily placed ( or incorporating any changes like the numbers 2-8, special boxes, etc ),. The disks were geared together at a ratio of 26:33. To encipher a message, the inner disk was turned until the desired letter was at the top position, with the number of turns required for the result transmitted as ciphertext.



A model of CLOCK CRYPTOGRAPH
Wadsworth never got credit for his design because Charles Wheatstone invented an almost identical machine several years after Wadsworth, and got all the credit.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wadsworth%27s_cipher

 

 The importance of this system is that each of the words of the message influences the way in which the following word is encrypted , a property very interesting Of  modern ciphers.

Now I will try to find the combination of the two rings of the clock  (DEC 2014)

  1. Remember the work of commander Joseph J. Rochefort

    Since the early spring of 1942, the US had been decoding messages stating that there would soon be an operation at objective "AF". It was not known where "AF" was, but Commander Joseph J. Rochefort and his team at Station HYPO were able to confirm that it was Midway by telling the base there by secure undersea cable to radio an uncoded false message stating that the water purification system it depended upon had broken down and that the base needed fresh water. The code breakers then picked up a Japanese message that "AF was short on water."

    In the beggining, a partial decrypt in which the words koryaku butai, invasion force, were followed by the geographical designator AF. Koryaku butai had appeared in orders for the invasions of Rabaul, Java, Sumatra, and Bali that Hypo had already read. AF had been tentatively identified as Midway. Rochefort argued that the clincher was an order that air base equipment was to be shipped to Saipan to be in position for the "AF ground crews." AF was obviously an island air base; it was, Rochefort insisted, a matter of simple deduction to see that it had to be Midway.

    But then Commander John H. Redman began to throw cold water in copious quantities. Washington, in short, rejected Midway as the target of the gathering Japanese offensive. Several weeks earlier Redman had scrawled an irritated note on a memo that had identified AF as Midway: "Comment said AF=Midway, but pointed out that comm. zone designations not identical with area designations."

    But Rochefort and his team had a genuine knack for locating the real kernels of intelligence, a process some ascribe to finding a particular piece of straw in an enormous haystack. In the end, the Commander of the Pacific Fleet, Admiral Chester Nimitz, sided with Rochefort and his analysis, after the Japanese fell for a HYPO-crafted ruse, reporting that "AF" (their designation for Midway) was running out of fresh water.

  2. Hello from Spain

    Finally, a New Clue to Solve the CIA’s Mysterious Kryptos Sculpture

    http://www.wired.com/2014/11/second-kryptos-clue/

    The six letters that spell “Berlin”—NYPVTT—-are the 64th through 69th letters of the final 97 characters and the new clue “clock” are deciphered from the next five letters that follow it.

    So, obviously I’m wrong.
    It was a very nice solution possible but the circumstances have changed

    The hunt continues
