Automated decryption tool using machine learning & common sense

What is this?

Ciphey is an automated decryption tool. Input encrypted text, get the decrypted text back.

"What time of encryption?" That's the point. You don't know, you just know it's possibly encrypted. Ciphey will figure it out for you.

Ciphey uses a deep neural network to guess what something is encrypted with, and then a custom built natural language processing module to determine the output.

Ciphey can solve most things in under 3 seconds. asciicast


  • 20+ encryptions supported such as hashes, encodings (binary, base64) and normal encryptions like Caesar cipher, Transposition and more.
  • Deep neural network for targetting the right decryption resulting in decryptions taking less than 3 seconds. If Ciphey cannot decrypt the text, Ciphey will use the neural network analysis to give you information on how to decrypt it yourself.
  • Custom built natural language processing module Ciphey can determine whether something is plaintext or not. It has an incredibly high accuracy, along with being fast.
  • Multi Language Support at present, only English.
  • Supports hashes & encryptions Which the alternatives such as CyberChef do not.

Getting Started



pip3 install ciphey

ciphey -t "encrypted text here" To run ciphey.

Cloning from GitHub

git clone cd ciphey && python3 ciphey -t "encrypted text here"``` To run ciphey

Running Ciphey

To get rid of the progress bars, probability table, and all the noise use the grep mode. ciphey -t "encrypted text here" -g For a full list of arguments, run ciphey -h.

It is also possible to pipe data into Ciphey, or to use Ciphey like ciphey 'encrypted text here'

Importing Ciphey

You can import Ciphey's main and use it in your own programs and code. This is feature is expected to expand in the next version.

The Internal Data packet

  • Passed around in the program, it is {"lc":, "IsPlaintext?": True, "Plaintext": translated, "Cipher": "Caesar", "Extra Information": "The rotation used is {counter}"}
