Crypto Machines Timeline

When I visited Bletchley Park last weekend I saw John Alexander's 'Enigma and Friends' exhibition. He created a nice banner, a large timeline with all the important cipher machines. Since there's no equivalent on the www I decided to create a webpage with such a timeline.

On this timeline you can follow the development of cipher machines. The machines are presented with a picture and a brief description, some history and a few links to more pictures or detailed information. This is not a complete list! There were many more cipher machines, but this timeline gives a good view on the development of these machines in the 20th century. You can find it on my website.
