Unabomber’s Secret Code Cracked

Ted Kaczynski’s secret code has finally been cracked – a decade after he was arrested. The most memorable quote in the article comes from Bruce Schneier:

“it would not surprise me if this was the most complex cipher the FBI has seen since World War II.”

The irony is that Kaczynski was against technology and targeted computer experts. These same computer experts would likely be very impressed by Kaczynski’s cipher. Ciphers are critical to secure storage and transmission of electronic data, and the fact that the NSA couldn’t break Kaczynski’s cipher is quite impressive.
