||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.
