Bacon Cipher: Encrypt and Decrypt Online

Bacon’s cipher or the Baconian cipher is a steganographic technique that uses bilateral substitution alphabet where each letter is encrypted with a series of 5 characters consisting of the letters A and B. It was invented by Francis Bacon in 1605 as a technique of hiding one message within another. This means that a message is concealed in the presentation of text, rather than its content. There are two versions of the baconian alphabet, in the first version the letters "I and J" have the same code and the same applies to letters "U and V" while in the second version, each letter has its own code. For example, A would be replaced with AAAAA, B would be replaced with AAAAB, and so on.
