Australian intelligence agencies issued a coin with a cipher

In honor of the 75th anniversary of the cybersecurity agencyThe country's foreign intelligence agency, the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD), issued a commemorative coin with ciphers of varying complexity. Whoever deciphers everything will be able to get a job in ASD.

ASD CEO Rachel Noble said the coin celebrates the work of members of the agency and the evolution of code breaking.

“Even during the Second World War, our people,military and civilians…used pencil and paper to decipher Japanese military codes and then recoded them and sent them to allies so they knew where the Japanese military was.” – Rachel Noble, head of intelligence.

The coin serves a more important purpose than just being a fun puzzle to crack, and Noble said that those who crack the codes could get a job at ASD.

“We thought it was really funnya way to get people to crack codes with the hope that if they pass all four levels of coding on a coin, they might apply for a job with the Australian Signals Authority,” Noble said.
