Cryptology: The Science of Concealing
Our web site was designed to be a general reference site for all things realating to cryptology. To make our site stand out from the many web sites and books that cover the methodology of cryptology, we focused on the historical, and sometimes personal, aspects of our subject. We find that these interesting anecdotes make cryptology seem far more real, and they often show how important cryptology has been in the some of the most important events of the world. In addition, we offer a different cryptogram after each lesson, so the user can get some experience in cracking codes. As the user completes more of the cryptograms, they receive AgentPoints, and the top 7 \"agents\" are listed on our front page. There is a discussion board so users can argue online debates, or give each other hints on the cryptograms. The web site has plenty of links for more detailed information, and we plan on adding a new feature to our web site every two weeks devoted to new advancements in cryptology or a particularly important cryptologist.
