Total Computer Security Could Result from Unbreakable Optical Code


Researchers at Mitsubishi Electric, NEC and the University of Tokyo claim to have made a breakthrough in a new technique for very secure data communications.

The parties have implemented a technique known as quantum cryptography, which codes the data optically and have for the first time transmitted information between systems uses this technique.

According to the trio, it is hoped that using this technology it will be possible to realize networks with unbreakable codes within five years. Electronic Business - Total Computer Security Could Result from Unbreakable Optical Code - 5/15/2006 - Electronics Weekly - CA6334632
