It seems that you're in Germany. We have a dedicated site for Germany. This accessible textbook presents a fascinating review of cryptography and cryptanalysis across history.
This is then followed by an exploration of cryptology in the computer age, from public-key cryptography and web security, to criminal cyber-attacks and cyber-warfare.
Looking to the future, the role of cryptography in the Internet of Things is also discussed, along with the potential impact of quantum computing. John F. Before returning to teaching in , he spent more than 15 years in the software industry as a developer, designer, and manager working for companies such as Bell Telephone Laboratories, McDonnell Douglas, IBM, and Motorola.

History of Cryptography and Cryptanalysis
By Alexander D'Agapeyeff. CODES and ciphers appear at first sight to be such complicated and difficult affairs, and so completely wrapped in mystery, that all but the boldest hesitate to tackle them; yet as Bishop Wilkins implied in the sentence quoted above, any person of average ability is capable of acquiring a knowledge of almost any subject, and there is no reason why we should not, with the exercise of patience and perseverance, become familiar with the main principles of Cryptography—to give this fascinating science its proper name. Most people have a natural curiosity to know what lies beyond the closed door, what secrets are hidden behind signs and symbols that have no obvious meaning. It may be that there is nothing much left to be discovered in the material world, but there are unlimited possibilities in the world of thoughts and ideas. But thought, if it is to be effective, must be controlled and disciplined, and a knowledge of codes and ciphers can only be acquired by means of orderly and patient thinking. The same habit of thought is of incalculable value in many walks of life, so what is taken up as a hobby and amusement may be a training for more serious things.

The reason for this is to accomodate a major new section on the Lorenz cipher and how it was broken. This compliments the earlier section on the breaking of the Enigma machine. I have also There are many different types of codes and ciphers. A code is a system where a symbol, picture or group of letters represents a specific alphabetical letter or word. A cipher is where a message is made by substituting one symbol for a letter.

Cryptography, the use of codes and ciphers to protect secrets, began thousands of years ago. Until recent decades, it has been the story of what might be called classic cryptography — that is, of methods of encryption that use pen and paper, or perhaps simple mechanical aids. In the early 20th century, the invention of complex mechanical and electromechanical machines, such as the Enigma rotor machine , provided more sophisticated and efficient means of encryption; and the subsequent introduction of electronics and computing has allowed elaborate schemes of still greater complexity, most of which are entirely unsuited to pen and paper. The development of cryptography has been paralleled by the development of cryptanalysis — the "breaking" of codes and ciphers.

A code is a system of symbols, letters, words, or signals that are used instead of ordinary words and numbers to send messages or store information. A code is used to keep the message short or to keep it secret. Codes and ciphers are forms of secret communication. A code replaces words, phrases, or sentences with groups of letters or numbers, while a cipher rearranges letters or uses substitutes to disguise the message. This process is called encryption or enciphering.

When you were a kid, did you have a "Captain Midnight" decoder ring? With it, you could send messages to a friends that no one else could read. Or perhaps you remember using special symbols to write notes to your "squeeze" in class. If the note was intercepted , your teacher, could learn nothing about your romance. In more serious uses, codes and ciphers are used by our military and diplomatic forces to keep confidential information from unauthorized eyes.
