Experiencing technology described and seen in textbooks in the real-world is sometimes a rare experience for graduate students.  A local museum within easy driving distance from the GMU Fairfax campus provided just such an opportunity for the students of TCOM 556 Cryptography and Network Security first hand to learn about, see and touch technology used in this ever changing field.  The National Cryptologic Museum located near Fort Meade, Maryland has an extensive collection of machines and displays of Cryptographic and Information Assurance artifacts.
