Does anyone have any knowledge of academic papers focused on methods
of detecting whether a crypto scheme has been compromised in situ or
on how to utilize intelligence gleaned from compromised cipher texts
without giving away that compromise to the enemy?

I'm thinking in terms of scenarios like how could the Nazis have
methodologically shown Enigma's compromise in a systematic manner; the
converse as well though: has there been research into scenarios
similar to the Allies and Enigma (i.e. how to not give the game away),
or has it all just been highly intuitive guesswork? It doesn't have to
be period sensitive, anything from Caesar to the recent would be helpful.

Regards,

Landon Hurley
