Hey y’all. I have a background in engineering and recently have been on a kick of studying the various encryption devices of WW2, such as SIGABA, Enigma, Purple, TypeX. 

I was thinking of writing up a forum post going into these different systems. How they worked both technically and simplified, their flaws and successes, how they inspired each other and most importantly, how they were broken either physically or remotely. It’s a fascinating story and I was wondering if y’all would have an interest in reading it.

Sure! Sounds fascinating and I don't remember much of it around, so it will be a fun new twist on the type of history I usually see here.

I like this idea. 

You might want to put it in the Historical Discussion section of the forum.

Definitely yes!

I posted the first one in this forum sub topic. It covers the basics of encryption all the way to the rotor system which is the fundamentals of what was used in WW2
