Submission + - NSA Releases Astonishing Secret Pre-History of Computers (governmentattic.org)

An anonymous reader writes: The National Security Agency has declassified an eye-opening pre-history of computers used for code-breaking between the 1930s and 1960s. The 344 page report, entitled It Wasn't All Magic: The Early Struggle to Automate Cryptanalysis, is available on the Government Attic web site. http://www.governmentattic.org/8docs/NSA-WasntAllMagic_2002.pdf

Government Attic has also just posted a somewhat less declassified NSA compendium from 1993: A Collection of Writings on Traffic Analysis, http://www.governmentattic.org/8docs/NSA-TrafficAnalysisMonograph_1993.pdf
