CryptoKids and the NSA

February 8th, 2006 · No Comments

I’ve been interested in cryptography and data compression for years. I’m not really sure what draws me to these fields of study aside from the cloak and dagger backdrop you find interlaced through their history. Maybe it’s the pure algorithmic nature of the methods involved that entices me to throw my hat into the ring.

Any how, I found an incredibly cool site the other day that is part of the NSA website. (For those of you wondering what I’m talking about, the Nation Security Agency is the United States premier code creating and break agency, but I digress…) The NSA has a portion of their website devoted toward educating our youth to the fun and adventure that is cryptography. It’s called CryptoKids and it’s dedicated to America’s future codemakers and codebreakers.

Check it out at: http://www.nsa.gov/kids/home.cfm

I hope to add a dedicated page in the near future with more of my thoughts, links, and code on the subject of Cryptography.
