WILLIAM H. PAYNE  - ARTHUR R. MORALES DOCUMENTS

These documents pertain to a suit by cryptographer William H. Payne and Arthur R. Morales against the National Security Agency  (NSA) and related complaints by Payne against his former employer Sandia National Laboratories (SNL or Sandia), US Department of Energy, and federal officials. Sandia performs contract work for NSA, part of which involves cryptographic systems for nuclear weapons controls.

Payne worked on classified cryptographic systems at Sandia. He is a noted scholar, scientist and author of cryptography and computer programming books and articles.* Morales is currently employed at Sandia.

The documents describe Sandia's termination of Payne for alleged security violations, Payne's defense against the security violation charges, and Payne's counter-charges against Sandia and NSA of wrongful termination for criticizing NSA's cryptographic deficiencies and other cryptography-related misdeeds.
