Neobombe is a portrayal of Bombe and Enigma, the encryption and decryption devices used in World War 2.
The project was built by ArtMakesUs. We built a system that encrypted tweets and decrypted these encrypted texts back to the original text without referencing the original tweet. The whole system was made as part of our personal research into cryptography used in the war.
Neobombe was an experiment that we used to learn more about cryptography and cryptanalysis. We showcased it at Singapore MakerFaire 2015, and talked about our learnings at local tech meetups.
