Yer actual Enigma Machine. Yrs truly touched and keyed and played. Gaspworthy.
UNIX command crypt(1) is based on the Enigma cipher.
crypt(1) is a simple command to encrypt or decrypt data. Usually this is used as a filter and it has traditionally been implemented using an algorithm based on the Enigma machine. It is considered to be far too cryptographically weak to provide any security against brute force attacks by modern, commodity personal computers.
