Nash's letter to NSA

At the following link -and at the attached file-  you may find a recently declassified correspondence between John Nash and the NSA from January 1955, where Nash makes the distinction between polynomial time and exponential time,conjectures that there are problems that cannot be solved  and proposes a cryptosystem of his own design...

....simply awesome,
