You have managed to solve the first part? The file with all the "+-.[ "-symbols ? There are more parts to this, and the first one has nothing to do with popular encryption algorithms

Would also appreciate some help. I know which popular enc algorithm that is used and I have managed to generate some values using the values you get in part 2. However I am not able to decrypt the password using those values. I just get some other gibberish :P If anyone could pm me it wouldve been great!

Damn, I can't figure out that last step... got some hex data, but any string encoding I found doesn't work... I'll have to think about n3m0's list hint...

@melka it helps to understand what the output of that programming language looks like regardless of input. Try doing a hello world in that language on repl.it

"I recognize, Mr. Reese, that there's a disparity between how much I know about you and how much you know about me. I know you'll be trying to close that gap as quickly as possible. But I should tell you... I'm a really private person."

Anyone can help me with this ? I've solved the first and second part, i dont know what to do with the "decrypted" password!...If i convert it to ascii it is nonsense!

Before converting to ascii convert it to something 0x - looking

What is the best language for handling the input to the second part of this challenge? I was trying Python but even after 24 hours, and my computer using half it's resources it cannot even get m1 let alone further.

1) name of the challenge gives a hint
2) WEIRD asymetric crypto

Yes I cleared your first point before I posted. I understand what the second point (asymmetric crypto) is supposed to be, or at least I think I do, but my system cannot preform the math fast enough given the nature of the magnitude of the operations involved.

I have just solved it, so feel free to DM if you need anything!

I could really use any kind of hint, got my mind stuck

I recognize the first part. Next part, not so much. Any ideas?

Me too..

I believe I solved that one while having some leftovers from the chinese takeway. It rocked.

I got some "chinese" code but it does not like a flag and it is not a valid flag. Someone could help me?

Spoiler Removed - ArrexelI hate 3 things:

1.) Esoteric Programming

2.) Asymmetric cryptography

3.) Lists

I feel like people didn't appreciate this joke enough.

I have been laughing for a straight 10 minutes.

Hi,

I'm stuck. I think it's about the algorithm developed by Rives,Shamir and Aldeman . Maybe someone can write me a message and we can discuss

thanks

1) Search for esoteric languages

2) Search for those letters and cipher

3) Calculate de message, convert from hex to ascii.

solved, nice challenge

Thnx!

I've some doubts on the flag format. I got a password but

HTB{password}doesn't seem to work.....Ok... changed library for big numbers and got missing bytes...

Amen to coding !

completed this challenge if need any help feel free to pm

solved within a few minutes. Nice easy challenge

Fun! Took me awhile, but still fun.
