For decades, the swiss company Crypto AG, property of the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency) and BND (Bundesnachrichtendienst. the agency of foreign intelligence of the German government), marketed thousands of machines encrypted to a hundred countries around the world, such as Chile, Argentina, Brazil, Uruguay, Mexico, Colombia, Peru, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Spain, Greece, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Iran, and Iraq, among others.

These machines allowed the CIA to decode thousands of messages that could be related to episodes such as the 1973 military coup in Chile; the of 1976 in Argentina; the murder of the former foreign chilean Orlando Letelier in Washington in 1976; the sandinista revolution in Nicaragua, or the war of the Malvinas.

On this last, it follows that Reagan took to deliver the data intelligence of Argentina to the United Kingdom.

The only limitation of the program was that the principal adversaries of the united States, the Soviet Union and China, were never customers of Crypto AG, because suspected of ties with the West.

The Washington Post states that the products of Crypto AG continue to be used in more than a dozen countries, and its logo is orange and white it still looks at the top of the company’s headquarters in Zug, Switzerland, though the company was liquidated and dismantled in 2018 by its investors, through a company of Liechtenstein, whose laws permit shield the identities of these.

Two firms bought nearly all the assets of Crypto AG: CyOne Security, which sells security systems to the swiss Government, and Crypto International, which controls the brand and the international business of the old company. Both have insisted that they have no present connection with any Intelligence service, even though CyOne has the same executive director that had Crypto AG during the almost two decades that was the property of the CIA.
