Step 1: Write Out the Alphebet

Write the alphabet in a straight row, like you see in the picture.

Step 2: Write the Alphebet Backwards

Under the alphabet you just wrote out write the alphabet backwards, like you see in the picture above.

Step 3: Encode and Decode

Here is the key to encoding and decoding messages using Atbash. The letter directly bellow the letter on top is what the letter on top is equivalent to. So A=Z, B=Y, C=X and so on.

    This would be great to implement in python, probably could be done in 10 or so lines.
