Interestingly Godel in 1956 also talked about PvsNP in a letter to von Neumann

I keep reading all these descriptions that say John Forbes Nash Jr anticipated the P/NP problem in some letters to the NSA but other people say his conjecture was kind of obvious and basically Shannon already had it. What do you think @SteveBellovin and @mattblaze?

That hyphen looking thing is an "en dash" (UTF-8 codes e2 80 93), not an em dash or a regular hyphen.

Who the hell uses an en dash??

These two messages commit the mortal sin of classic cryptography: key reuse.

Come hear from @AnnaOpss and me how we decrypted them after almost 70 years and the story behind them at @hopeconf in NYC.
