Breaking the Enigma


Comments are closed.

Lot of good history and information on the Enigma machine, implementing simple state machines. Good talk about early crypto and how it was broken.

Brilliant talk! I'm really glad Chris was able to give this.

With the possible exception of Samantha's keynote on the same topic (history of computing), this was the most fascinating talk of the week. I'm sad that Chris only got a short-talk time slot for this one. Rather than merely talk about what mathematicians did in Europe in the 1930s and 1940s, Chris explored the theory with PHP. Epic.
