The Venona project intercepted codes passed among agents of the communist Soviet Union, and attempted to decrypt them. This was a project by the United States and United Kingdom during the Cold War. It helped identify people who were spying for the Soviet Union, and passing military secrets (such as information about the atomic bomb to it).

Venona began during World War II and continued until 1980.
