Cipher | Decipher Travelling Exhibition
Got a Secret?
Want to share it with a few trusted friends?
One way to share your secret is to encrypt your message—that is, change it to something only your friends can understand.
For all types of secrets—from schoolyard gossip to military plans—encryption keeps messages out of the wrong hands.
About the Cipher | Decipher Travelling Exhibit
The bilingual Cipher | Decipher Exhibition allows you to explore how encryption works, and how it affects our lives – from its role in war, to how we rely on it to keep our modern digital communications secure.
