Fascinating article on Crypto. I wonder how the CIA will replicate it in the digital age.
That would make a great movie. I could also see the Chinese making a movie where the Americans are the villains.

‘The intelligence coup of the century’
For decades, the CIA read the encrypted communications of allies and adversaries.

I'm sure this is why there is a concern about Huawei.
The US usually get's worked about this kind of stuff because we've done it already and know the same thing can be done by China or Russia.
It's no coincidence this story came out the same time as the Huawei exploit of the law enforcement tapping override.
