Abstract -
Cryptanalysis is the study of frequency of letters in encrypted message. It can allow an attacker to break unknown message without knowing a key. There are many ways of breaking cipher text if the used cipher is known. Frequency analysis is used in substitution cipher if and only if the table of distribution of letters is known. This paper aims to present the frequency distribution of letters of Kinyarwanda natural language.
