Interesting Facts about the career
Cryptology began in the ancient world. The ancient Greeks used a scytale, in which the person sending a message wound a strip of cloth around a stick, wrote the message vertically, filled in some random letters, unwrapped the strip, and sent it to the recipient. The message looked like random letters until wrapped around a stick the same size as the original.
Roman emperor, Julius Caesar, is believed to have made a cipher that substituted the letters in one alphabet for another.
The Arab world also excelled in making and breaking ciphers.
