There are four sections to the sculpture, each containing an encrypted message. Three of the four coded messages have been cracked. The fourth one has yet to be deciphered, and is considered one of the most famous unsolved codes in the world.
Krypto’s first three coded messages were cracked in 1999 by a computer scientist from southern California named James Gillogly. The fourth coded message has yet to be solved.
