Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. In cryptography, Fialka (M-125) is the name of a Cold War-era Soviet cipher machine. A rotor machine, the device uses 10 rotors, each with 30 contacts along with mechanical pins to control stepping. It also makes use of a punched card mechanism. "Fialka" means "violet" in Russian. Information regarding the machine was quite scarce until circa 2005 because the device had been kept secret. Fialka contains a five-level paper tape reader on the right hand side at the front of the machine, and a paper tape punch and tape printing mechanism on top. The punched-card input for keying the machine is located on the left hand side.show more
