Question: no extra information thats all for the question...

Question details

no extra information. that's all for the question

As a cryptanalyst, you are able to acquire the following ciphertext, along with some known plaintext as indicated. Encryption is based on the Hill cipher using blocks of 2 characters over Z26 synchronized so that the first 2 ciphertext characters are a block (Note that spaces, punctuation, and capitalization are removed from the plaintext.) plaintext Determine the decryption key and the encryption key. Decrypt the first 14 letters and guess the rest of plaintext. (HINT: For some data combinations it may not be possible to determine a unique solution when solving equations. If you find this to occur, use other data combinations in your analysis.)
