Curious about cryptography, the study of secrecy and hidden writing? Caroline D. Bradley Scholar Alum, Achyuta Rajaram, presents this Virtual Learning Lab series on the topic. This incredibly important technology has such an impact on the world, yet we rarely hear much about it. In this video, Achyuta explores the topic starting with ancient Roman times to 1945, where the Enigma machine both defined WW2 and marked the advent of modern cryptographic algorithms and computers. He will also discuss various ciphers, why they are insecure, and what impacts they have had on history. Subsequent videos in this series will cover various algorithms used in cryptography to secure everything around us, and the techniques used to break them.
If you’ve ever wondered about this form of communication, you’ll find Achyuta’s videos fascinating!
