The Nazi Naval Officers never dreamed the Allied Forces would get their hands on an Enigma machine and the instructions to the machine.

Once they began to suspect the Allies had figured out their code they had to alter their methods.

What is this native code and what is difference between native code and machine code?

They are the same thing. Every machine type has its own version of machine code, the native language of the machine (native machine code). All high-level code must be converted to native machine code before it can execute. Machine code is machine dependent but high-level code is generally machine-independent, thus the same source code can generally be converted to suit any type of machine using a suitable compiler or interpreter.
