Experience has shown and the point is forcibly expressed by Yves Gylden, in his "'The Contributions of the Cryptographic Bureaus in the World War", that at leatst an elementary knowledge of cryptanalysis is prerequisite to intelligent cryptography. Those who are responsible for the promulgation of our codes and ciphers, as well as for the promulgation of instructions for their use, are infinitely better equipped to meet their responsibilities if, by a knowledge of cryptanalysis, they are able to consider their work from the point of view of the adversary who will attack our codes and ciphers.
