Encryption systems are a fundamental part of how we use the Internet, yet every few years a major bug in their implementations appear. This talk will explore mistakes made during World War 2, as the Classical Cipher era was drawing to a close, and draw parallels with modern encryption strategies, aiming to learn from historical mistakes so that they aren’t made again.

This talk is part of the Churchill CompSci Talks series.
