The Lorenz MachineThis podcast is about the Lorenz cipher machine. The Lorenz cipher was Hitler’s preferred method of encryption used by himself and all his officials for communication. The Lorenz is simply described as an Enigma machine---- with millions of more possible keys and configurations. This podcast describes the conception of the Lorenz, how the encryption works, and how the code was ultimately broken by the Allies with the help of the world’s first computer.
