The Atbash Cipher is a code that can be used to hide information or send secret messages. Below is the Atbash Cipher:

                      A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z
                      Z Y X W V U T S R Q P O N M L K J I H G F E D C B A

Basically, the cipher uses a reverse alphabet, so you subject a letter for its corresponding reverse.

Examples

"HELLO" would become "SVOOL", "CHAIR" would become "XSZRI", "TELEVISION" would become "GVOVERHRLM".

One could save time by cutting the cipher in half, so it appears like this:

                                    A B C D E F G H I J K L M
                                    Z Y X W V U T S R Q P O N
