S. S. Air Force, for their important contributions to this work.

You did an amazing job of offering support, encouragement, and prodding, as each was required.

The only available means to counter this possibility was to create an encryption system, allowing messages to be delivered in a code that could then be decoded at the receiving end. Such codes tended to be fairly tedious and time-consuming, and might still be broken by an enemy given the time and materials necessary. As a result, encryption tended to be reserved for only the most secret information, and there were volumes of useful information transmitted in the clear to anyone along the line (Rosenzweig 2013, 130–36).

Early Attempts at Encryption As communication systems advanced, so too did mechanical means of conducting mathematical computations. In 1822, Charles Babbage designed the Difference Engine, a mechanical calculator that could automatically compile complex mathematical tables in a fraction of the time required by human mathematicians. In 1856, he offered a theoretical design for an Analytical Engine, a project that, if completed, might have been the world’s first true computer. It was designed to employ punch cards for the input of information, and when coupled with a printer for its output, it would have been capable of running rudimentary programs.
