Making An Unbreakable Code
from the yeah,-but-does-it-matter? dept
An interesting story about a Harvard professor who has apparently created a provably unbreakable cryptography system. The very basics of the system are explained, and I’m not sure I completely understand it. However, I agree with some of the skeptics who point out that while technically unbreakable, it’s either impractical or unnecessary anyways. There are other ways to get at content beside cryptography. And, of course, if a message can be read by someone, there’s always a way it can be read by someone else.
