En resumen:

The National Security Agency (NSA) has recently declassified an amazing
letter that John Nash sent to it in 1955.  It seems that around the year
1950 Nash tried to interest some US security organs (the NSA itself was
only formally formed only in 1952) in an encryption machine of his
design, but they did not seem to be interested.  It is not clear whether
some of his material was lost, whether they ignored him as a theoretical
professor, or — who knows — used some of his stuff but did not tell him.
