The plan for 2020

When I started researching cryptologic history in 2010 I didn’t expect I’d still be doing it 10 years later. It just goes to show you that life is unpredictable.

During the year I’ll keep an eye out for any interesting books or articles but I will not do any active research on cryptologic history. As in 2019 I will post only when there is something interesting to report.

The HistoCrypt2020 conference might have some interesting presentations. Also the authorized history of GCHQ will be published in October. 

Apart from that I’ll be waiting for the processing of my two FOIA cases (TICOM report I-40 from the NSA and the Henriksson report from the State Department). However, if I haven’t received them till December I’ll cancel both cases.
