Crypto AG Magazines

The Crypto AG magazine is published every four months. The magazine focuses on various aspects of cryptography such as ICT security, software and hardware cryptographic technology, cyber threats, security management and many more.

In the 1/2009 issue you can find the chapter "Milestones in the history of the company part 1: the 1950s". In this article, you'll find the Crypto AG family tree on mechanical cipher machines and a description and images of several Hagelin machines such as the C-36, C-52 and the CD-57. Some Telex encryption equipment and one-time pad are also mentioned. I'm most curious to the next parts of this series.

The magazines are available in English, German, Spanish, Russian and Arabic. They are downloadable from the Cyrpto AG website. If this magazine is new to you, it's worth while reading some of the previous publications.
