Cryptologic History  

                     The art and science of cryptology has driven the
                     work of NSA since its inception. The Center for
                     Cryptologic History (CCH) is responsible for
                     NSA's Cryptologic History Program, the object of
                     which is to preserve the institutional memory of
                     NSA and to document the role of cryptology in
                     American history.  

                     The CCH has produced many informative
                     publications about American cryptologic history.
                     It has also gathered significant original
                     documents from the VENONA project and the Cuban
                     Missile Crisis which have been declassified and
                     released. The Center holds a biennial symposium
                     on Cryptologic History, inviting academia and
                     historians to present papers and panels on a wide
                     range of cryptologic history topics.
