The plugboard provides a new layer of security for the enigma but why can we only swap at most 10 letters? I only found things like "10 was the most common." but why stop there? Isn't adding more going to provide more security?
At first, I thought it was not going to add more complexity at one point, because swapping two letters that have already been swapped by the rotors is not going to change anything. But after a rotor does a single turn, that wouldn't matter anymore.
