A simple encryption scheme where each letter is rotated 13 characters up or down the alphabet. Based on one of the world's oldest encryption schemes, ROT13 came into common use in the 1970s on early BBS's (Bulletin Board Systems), and later on Usenet. In geocaching, cache location hints are encoded using ROT13.
