Source: 2worldwar2The Enigma machine was an advanced electro-mechanical cipher machine developed in Germany after World War 1. The Enigma machine was used by all branches of the German military as their main device for secure wireless communications until the end of World War 2. Several types of the Enigma machine were developed before and during World War 2, each more complex and harder to code break than its predecessors. The most complex Enigma type was used by the German Navy. In addition to the complexity of the Enigma machine itself, its operating procedures became increasingly complex, as the German military wanted to make Enigma communications harder to code break.Various intelligence evidence during World War 2 led the German military to make several investigations about the possibility that The Allies can read Enigma messages. The German intelligence and communications experts concluded that Enigma was still secure from allied code breakers. They were wrong.
