Abstract

The Enigma machine was a cipher machine used by the Germans during WWII tp stump the Allied forces and prevent their communications from being read by unwanted parties. It used a complicated system of rotors, reflectors, and rings to encrypt text. In this project, I wrote the code using the Java programming language to simulate the Wehrmaght Enigma machine so that its inner workings could be understood better. This is demonstrated through a run through of the program on an Android device.
