Presentation:

German Ciphers in WW2

Speaker(s):
Date & time (UTC/GMT):
November 28, 2020 5:00 PM
Description:

In WW2 the Germans used at least 12 different cipher machines, dozens of codebooks, hundreds of manual ciphers, several disks/slides/cylinders, and numerous steganographic methods. While the Enigma is extremely popular, other German WW2 ciphers have received considerably less or even no attention in the research community. In this talk an overview on German WW2 ciphers will be given. While the Enigma will play a small role, the focus will lie on other German machines. A few simple ciphers, codebooks and steganographic techniques will be introduced, too. In addition, a number of unanswered questions about German WW2 ciphers will be addressed.
