What We Do
A key component of our mission involves promoting a greater understanding of the role of cryptology in protecting our nation. We also seek to increase awareness of the growing significance of cybersecurity. To achieve these goals, we provide interesting and valuable cryptologic programs, as well as partner with or promote the work of our sister organizations. In this section you will find Cryptologic Bytes, the Blog, and Cybersecurity News.
The NCMF supports the National Cryptologic Museum’s efforts to stimulate interest in the fields of cryptology, cybersecurity, intelligence analysis, mathematics, computers, and other related disciplines. This section includes information about educational tours and activities at the Museum. Plus, learn about the variety of educational activities and exhibits the NCMF supports, including the NCMF sponsored MD History Day Awards, student outreach, and cryptology game kiosks.
An important part of our mission involves recognizing and honoring significant contributions made in the field of cryptology. Cryptologic pioneers and leaders are honored by the NCMF and NSA/NCM in a variety of ways, to include the Cryptologic Hall of Honor, the Museum Entrance Display, the In Memoriam Registry, the Benefactor and Patron Panel, and the In Memoriam Panel. Explore the Commemorate Section to learn more about the honorees, as well as how you can recognize those who have made recent contributions.
