Hidden within the source of the “Hank: The Aegis Nova Conflict” post on the Investigate Ingress blog, there were two codes:

`[1] 81/27dw352/16eb96/16nx88/4ni60/12ho16/8hs30/15bf84/14iw1/1`

`[2] watrthsqdgdnonohubfd`

# Code #1

## Observations

The string seems a bit weird for a single passcode and since we have only two codes to solve from the post, there might be two codes within this code.

Let us split them in a way that seems logically:

`81/27dw352/16eb96/16nx88/4ni60/12ho16/8hs30/15bf84/14iw1/1`

becomes

`1a: dw eb nx ni ho hs bf iw `

`1b: 81/27 352/16 96/16 88/4 60/12 16/8 30/15 84/14 1/1`

Let us take care of **1a** first:

`dwebnxnihohsbfiw`

The length looks good for everything to be there and a keyword can be spotted, but the numbers are missing so we will need to either find them or become creative.

[hint]

Find the transposition to make the keyword readable, then look at what you have in the locations for the numbers.

[/hint]

Now for **1b**:

`81/27 352/16 96/16 88/4 60/12 16/8 30/15 84/14 1/1`

Doing the given math for each section, we see that the left side is evenly dividable by the right side (eg. `81 / 27 = 3`

)

But that is currently as far as we have gotten.

If you have a solve for this, let us know via one of the avenues of contacting us.

# Code #2

## Observations

Length of the code points to potentially written our numbers.

The normal basic steps of Atbash, ROT and Rectangles gives no visible solution, so we’ll need another kind of ciphers.

[hint]

They haven’t used this one for a few months, but it should be there in your toolbox of things to try.

Be fair and give all your known ciphers a chance to solve it for you 😉
