For as long as we’ve had secret information, individuals and organizations have encrypted and analyzed encrypted communications.
From schoolyard gossip to military plans, ciphers keep secrets out of the wrong hands. Cipher | Decipher is an interactive, new exhibition exploring the past and present of communications cryptology. Developed by the Canada Science and Technology Museum, in partnership with the Communications Security Establishment, this 750 sq. ft. travelling exhibition includes an authentic Enigma cipher machine and interactive experiences related to cryptology and cyber security.
The exhibition helps Canadians understand communications cryptology: what it is, how it works, and how it affects our lives. A removable puzzle module allows visitors to see if they possess the skills necessary for working in the field of cryptology.
