Presentation:

More Famous and Not-so-Famous Unsolved Codes

Speaker(s):
Date & time (UTC/GMT):
December 12, 2020 5:00 PM
Description:

In October of this year, Elonka and Klaus gave an ICCH presentation about several cryptograms such as Kryptos; the D-Day pigeon message; the Debosnys murder case; and a few other unsolved crypto mysteries. However, there are many other noteworthy unsolved ciphertexts than can be covered in a 45-minute talk, so in this next presentation, the two will introduce many more spectacular unsolved codes. The stories they are going to tell include a mysterious 1953 murder case; a 32-page cryptogram from WW2; a series of encrypted inscriptions in Australia; a hidden treasure; and a telegram found in a secret pocket of a century-old dress. While some of these stories are well-known, others have yet to be covered in any academic literature or presentations. However, all of these stories have one thing in common: they include an encrypted message that has never been deciphered.
