Cryptologic Hall of Honor

Hall of Honor - These were the GiantsThe Hall of Honor was created in 1999 to pay special tribute to the pioneers and heroes who rendered distinguished service to American cryptology. The standards are high for induction into this great hall. The individuals honored were innovators over their entire careers or made major contributions to the structure and processes of American cryptology. The men and women who have been inducted to the Hall of Honor are all greats in the once silent world of cryptology.

They made important contributions to both offensive and defensive cryptology. As such, they were among the first inducted into the Hall of Honor.
