quantum key distribution
We're another step closer to an "unhackable" internet.
For the first time, researchers demonstrate how to make quantum key distribution work on a 200Gbit/sec line.
For many years, we've been able to communicate via electronic messages really, really securely. Thank asymmetric key cryptography for this, a scheme for encoding messages that is nigh unbreakable. The widely-used and depended-upon secrecy scheme rests...
