National Cypher Challenge 2015
by J Chappell - Tuesday, 22 September 2015, 3:44 PM

The National Cipher Challenge is an annual cryptographic competition organised by the University of Southampton School of Mathematics. Competitors attempt to break cryptograms published on the competition website.  

A back-story makes the competition both interesting and informative. Last year’s challenge was based on the story of a young talented artist named Sarah, whose skills have saved her from death, but have imprisoned her.

The competition is open to anyone in full time education, aged 18 and under and can be tackled by students in teams or on their own. Why not form a team and work together in Computer Club?

Registration opens on 30th September.
