Atbash Cipher

Description

The Atbash Cipher is a monoalphabetic substitution cipher that is relatively simple and does not require a key. Instead of a key, the substitution simply relies on reversing the alphabet. Therefore, 'A' becomes 'Z', 'B' becomes 'Y', and so forth. This makes it a weak cipher in terms of how easy it is to decode. However, it does have one notable security measure- including numbers and punctuation on either side of the alphabet that also has to be reversed.
