We love a challenge, and we think you do, too.

We’re celebrating the life, work and legacy of mathematician Alan Turing this week on Wired.co.uk, and part of that legacy is inspiring people to work in cryptography and codebreaking — so we’ve partnered with the Cyber Security Challenge UK to set you a challenge.

Turing’s career spanned both science and technology, but it was his work in deciphering the German Enigma code that Churchill called the single biggest contribution to Allied victory in the Second World War.

So in honour of that work, we’d like you to crack the code above! For more info, pop over to Threat Level for the official rules.

    So, I don’t know if you all know this, but I have a lot of Alan Turing feels. A LOT.
