The Turing-Welchman Bombe attempts to break Enigma messages again
Live video link up with World Computer congress in Poland
as a tribute to Polish cryptographers and wartime Bletchley Park staff
18 September 2018
In a live video link-up with Poland on 21 September 2018, the reconstructed Turing-Welchman Bombe at The National Museum of Computing on Bletchley Park will try to find the key of the day and break Enigma messages just as it did during the Second World War.
Ruth Bourne, a wartime Bombe operator, will be present to verify the process as the TNMOC Bombe Team attempt to find the key to decrypt messages that will be sent from Poland throughout the day.
The challenge is part of a live video link-up with the World Computer Congress in the Poznan Supercomputing Centre, Poland. At the conference, the audience will also hear papers relating to cryptography, the Bombe and Alan Turing from presenters including Sir Dermot Turing, Dr Marek Grajek and Dr Roger Johnson.
