  Tunny (cryptography) | English | Dictionary & Translation by Babylon
The Lorenz SZ 40 and SZ 42 (Schlüsselzusatz, meaning "cipher attachment") were German cipher machines used during World War II for teleprinter circuits.
British codebreakers, who referred to encrypted German teleprinter traffic as "Fish", termed the machine and its traffic "Tunny".
While the well-known Enigma machine was generally used by field units, the Lorenz machine was used for high-level communications which could support the heavy machine, teletypewriter and attendant fixed circuits.

Tunny traffic was intercepted at Knockholt in Kent, before being sent to Bletchley Park.
The first was a family of machines known as "Heath Robinsons", which used several high-speed paper tapes, along with electronic logic circuitry, to help break into Tunny.

 enigma machine - Article and Reference from OnPedia.com
In the history of cryptography, the Enigma was a portable cipher machine used to encrypt and decrypt secret messages.
However, a different initial rotor position was chosen for each message, because if a number of messages are sent encrypted with identical or near-identical settings, a cryptanalyst has several messages "in depth", and might be able to attack the messages using frequency analysis.
To counter this, a different starting position for the rotors was chosen for each message; a similar concept to an initialisation vector in modern cryptography.

Tunny, by the way, was the name Bletchley Park used for the Lorenz SZ42 machine, and was not a codebreaking machine.
But for all that 'bletchleys tunny' was never a 'codebreaking machine' it WAS initialy used in the breaking of Lorenz, be it a considerably manual approach compared to their later efforts with a colossus.
I am, therefore, referring to the device built by the british to emulate the german devices which was nicknamed 'tunny' If you wish to verify this I believe it was built at the UK's PORL which was, I think, then based at Dollis Hill.

Tunny traffic was tackled by the Research section shortly after the first link was set up in June, 1941.
In July, 1942 Major R.P. Tester formed a Tunny section (the "Testery" - consisting mainly of ex-members of the Research section) to tackle Tunny on an operational basis, and from July to October, 1942 nearly every message was read.
Newman's section became essential to all Tunny work and a new division of labour was effected.

In cryptography, the M-209, designated CSP-1500 by the Navy (C-48 by the manufacturer) is a portable, mechanical cipher machine used by the US military primarily in World War II, though it remained in active use through the Korean War.
The M-209 was designed by Swedish cryptographer Boris Hagelin in response to a request for such a portable cipher machine, and was an improvement of an earlier machine, the C-36.
As with the Lorenz Electric teletype cypher machine (codenamed Tunny by the Allies), if a codebreaker got hold of two overlapping sequences, he would have a fingerhold into the M-209, and its operation had some distinctive quirks that could be exploited.

All Colossus could do, really, was read paper tape, perform certain plug-selected binary operations on one or more of the bits of each frame read from the tape (usually only 2 channels out of 5 were looked at), and depending on the output of that binary function, increment counters.
The novelty of Colossus lies in the technology, more than the architecture: it was certainly the first large-scale electronic digital device, and thereby had a great influence on post-WWII computer development in the UK (since many of the leading lights in that field, such as Newman and Turing, were intimately associated with Colossus).
