Write the plaintext in rows of width l(length of Key) and read it off by columns. Take the columns in a order defined by a key.

Here, l = 5,

Keyword   = L A Y E R
Key       = 3 1 5 2 4

Plaintext = W E L C O
M E T O N
E T W O R
K S E C U
R I T Y !

E comes after A so E=2

L comes after E so L=3 so on...
