Cryptohistory

Information security took great strides forward during WWII, particularly in the field of cryptography and cryptanalysis.  With help from their allies (particularly the Poles), the boffins at Bletchley Park were able to piece together details of many of the encryption schemes used by the Axis forces and succeeded in breaking some of them, thanks in part to inventing computers to crack crypto keys.
