Ultra-secure 100-year-old code cracked by Israeli cryptographer
Double transposition cipher used by armies and agents from World War I through to the Cold War.
Israeli researcher George Lasry has succeeded in decoding a 100-year-old cipher, or code, that had been considered unbreakable. The double transposition cipher is actually considered one of the easiest to create, and in practice was mostly used for manual encryption; but despite it being relatively old, it was still considered to be one of the hardest manual ciphers to crack.
