Enigma Challenge News

On August, 17, Martin Eklöf from Sweden was the 20th person to break all 10 messages of the Enigma Cipher Challenge. He did it in an incredible four days and used software he wrote himself (in C language) to crack the Enigma messages. Congratulations to Martin!

Meanwhile, the competition is running for more than three years now and no less than 126 brave codebreakers joined this challenge. New competitors keep entering the challenge. If you want to give it a try, don't hesitate. You don't require any professional crypto skills or be a math geek. Some logical thinking and a bit of persistence will do the job and gets you in the Table of Honor.
