Mission

The National Cryptologic Foundation's (NCF) vision is to influence the cryptologic future by sharing our educational resources, stimulating new knowledge, and commemorating our heritage. The threefold tenets of the NCF are to: EDUCATE the public, especially the nation’s young minds. As a nationally reputed provider of assured quality cyber education resources focused on K-20 cohorts, our efforts help reduce cyber workforce deficits and current skills shortfalls, thereby promoting cyber professions as a fulfilling career choice. STIMULATE public engagement by serving as a venue for robust proactive dialogue on issues of cyber policy, technology, and privacy. As a bridge between government and entrepreneurs, promote innovation to solve our cryptologic challenges. Finally, inspire students to explore cryptology and other STEM fields of study. COMMEMORATE all “those who serve in silence” in the cryptologic mission with valor and distinction, and whose contributions help enhance and preserve our way of life. The Foundation also provides financial support to the National Cryptologic Museum. The Foundation & Museum share a desire to inform the public about the vital contribution made to the national security of the United States by the signals intelligence and information security services, and to commemorate the men and women who made the difference. The National Cryptologic Foundation comports itself in accordance with the highest ethical standards, consistent with the requirements of a not-for-profit institution.
