Abstract

We explore the up-to now unknown details of the history of cryptology in Slovakia found in Slovak archives. This contribution focuses on cryptology of the Slovak State, which was a German puppet state during WW2. We identify three main types of ciphers in use. Firstly, ciphers from the former Czechoslovakia were adopted. During main military campaigns, the ciphers were mostly dictated by Germany. Finally, we describe a series of hand ciphers A-x specifically designed in Slovakia, mostly for internal use.
