XOR Encryption

if A ^ B = C, then C ^ B = A and C ^ A = B.

This is one of the salient features of XOR that allows us to reverse engineer one of the inputs given one input and the output.

A (plaintext ) ^ B (key) = C (Ciphertext)

In encryption lingo, given the key (B) and the ciphertext (C), it is possible to get the plaintext (A)
