Bruce Willis available for comment-but hardly says a word.

What's funny is that a 13 year old kid from Russia will break it

And Putin will take the credit.

I was excited for Drago to return in next Rocky movie. Then I got this instead.

Not sure it's really "unbreakable", just tamper evident.  You can still try and read the data, or mess with it, but any tampering will be evident on the other side.

Besides, we have had unbreakable codes for a while now like one time pads.

Hilarious. From what I've seen, theoretically you will instantly know when an evesdropper shows up. In practice, if you can set the whole system up, you can secure the entire area.

There is also that whole operational security issue. If you let everyone with Snowden's and Manning's clearances see Terabytes of top secret data, you will get wholesale leaks of all that data. Simply assume that everything in such a network is already stored in Beijing, Moscow, various EU countries trading with the US, and anywhere else that could be bothered to spy on the US.

Quick question. Do you really think the NSA is using this type of connection (especially without further encryption) to connect Ft. Meade MD, with the new Utah datacenter?

Mister Snowden can most likely answer that question for you.

It is currently not technically possible to generate, seperate and manipulate an entangled pair of photons, much less send one over the internet. This is strait up bullshiat.

Didn't I read about this in a Dan Brown book?
Something about a fortress?

No.  No such book exists.

Yeah, and if it were actually possible to detect a "state change" if the key was intercepted, then you'd be able to transmit information back FTL. Either a bad write up or bad science or both.

Justice By Zig: I was excited for Drago to return in next Rocky movie. Then I got this instead.


I was hoping for something of the like.  Mostly because I have this theory that his line "I must break you" really meant he didn't want to do it and respected Balboa's tenacity, but he was under orders from the Party to defeat Rocky as hard as possible in a show of Soviet superiority.
