Hank: The Aegis Nova Conflict

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.

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.
