Geocache Description:

*** Not at the posted Coordinates ***

This is the final of a part series (three plus a final).  Please make a note of the word(s) written in the last line of the log.  Enter those words into the checker. 


The Finale:

Breaking the Enigma machine was the work of countless individuals combined with several flashes of genius from the likes of Alan Turing, Marian Rejewski and others.  The fact that this was all done without the aid of computers is remarkable.

If you feel like applying some of that modern computer horsepower, feel free to attack the cipher below. It might be your best chance at a FTF!

 

The Easy Way:

The first three puzzles are here: Enigma 1; Enigma 2; Enigma 3

Enter the keywords found in the logs of the first three puzzles into the checker and the final location will be revealed.  The cipher below reveals the same keywords.

 

The Hard Way:

The following message was encrypted using the standard Army Enigma using the following configuration: Rotor Numbers:  I, II, III, IV, V (3 rotors used; random order); Starting Rotor Configuration: Unknown; Plugboard (Stecker): 10 cables used; Ringstellung (ignored).
