The GCHQ is interested in finding the next batch of code-breakers for the future. It is unclear how the GCHQ will get in contact with the potential candidates, or how the GCHQ will be able to identify actual codebreakers from cheaters. Encryption has moved from a wartime function designed to hide messages, to a way for Internet services to provide security against surveillance. New encryption techniques are on the rise, as more people worry about who is reading their private messages.
Apple and Google recently announced new encryption on mobile devices, set to stop the FBI from accessing the devices without a warrant. Terrorist organizations still use some encryption techniques when messaging, but some have been caught chatting on Facebook about potential attacks. Published under license from ITProPortal.

Dorothy married a Navy man. In Washington, D. Each morning she donned her uniform, slipped her ID around her neck, walked through the gate in two high barbed-wire fences surrounding a large school building, saluted her superiors, and spent the day scanning for five-digit numbers divisible by three.
As at Wheaton, decoders were given only sections of messages.

After she had decoded her portion, the messages were sent to the next room for further work before they were forwarded to American commanders. Elinor, salutatorian of her Wheaton class and a member of Phi Beta Kappa, graduated with honors in both history and economics. There she lived and worked with 10 women in the Naval Communications Annex, decoding Japanese messages. Eunice Work, Wheaton professor of classics from to , appears to have been recruited to teach the cryptography course beginning in the fall of She taught it until December of , when she left for Washington, D.
She remained on leave to the U. Navy throughout and What was her preparation for teaching cryptology? Perhaps it was her reading knowledge of Russian, which she had improved with Army-Navy courses at Columbia and Cornell that introduced her to the vocabulary of science, economics, politics and war. Maud Marshall, then Wheaton assistant professor of chemistry, finished the fall course and taught it in the spring of She also took classes in French and mathematics.
She moved to Washington, D. Decoders labored around the clock to handle the thousands of messages intercepted each day. They often went to work during the wartime blackouts, and frequently transferred from bus to bus so no one would detect their work location. Shortly after the war ended, Neva Jane met U. Navy Lt. Robert Upp, who had been serving on an attack transport in the northern Pacific.
Government records on breaking the Enigma and Purple codes were declassified in But sworn to secrecy, most civilian and Navy decoders did not reveal their contributions to the war effort. After the war, many wanted only to move on with their lives. They married, had children, and died believing that even their children would not be interested in their war stories. Actions as prosaic as making a call on a cellphone, logging onto a computer, purchasing an item over the Internet, inserting an ATM card at the bank or using a satellite dish for TV reception all involve the digitizing and encrypting of information.
Companies with proprietary data and countries with classified information: all kinds of organizations need a way to encode and decrypt their secrets to keep them hidden from prying eyes.

See if you can decipher it and tell us what it says. Write or e-mail us at magazine wheatoncollege. If you get it, we will brag about you in the next issue of the Wheaton Magazine. This encryption is made via a monoalphabetic substitution, in which one letter is always substituted for another. The Caesar cipher is the most famous example. Wheaton Magazine. Navigation menu.
