There were two main German cypher machines used during WW2:
  1. The Enigma machine was used for low level tactical messages between units in the field. Messages were manually encrypted/decrypted using the machine and sent/received as radio telegrams. There were different versions of the Enigma used by the Army, Navy, Gestapo, SS, etc.
  2. The Lorenz machine was used to send high level strategic messages between high command and the various generals. Messages were automatically encrypted/decrypted using a standard Baudot teletype for input/output and automatically transmitted/received. There were four different versions of the Lorenz machine (SZ40, SZ42, SZ42A and SZ42B) introduced at different times in the war to improve its security.
