A dozen agencies want to snoop into every bit of communication that takes place on the internet, via email, telephones, etc. (I'm surprised the creeps aren't reading our snail mail, and pushing legislators to pass laws that would allow them to implant listening devices in our voice boxes). Another agency invents the means to make that impossible, heeheeheehee. Gooooooood!

(Welcome to Gaymerica.)
This is where the messages reach the receiver two weeks before they’re sent, isn’t it?
They need it for the Obamacare bill collection system.

I think it will be made illegal - unless the gov can crack it.

im going to bookmark this for later so i know what it is about but in the meantime i can say i positively trust them without a doubt when they say they can make my communications secure i gotta go write some more bad checks now see ya

Wow, this is going into the novel I’m writing.

I'm not surprised, often the government has technology that is 10 years or more ahead of what is available to the public. I remember my dad describing bar-code scanners that the military was using for inventory way back in the late 1960’s, about fifteen years before they started appearing in stores.

If you cant route - it is NOT an Internet. Not even an Intranet.
Good for honest people and... terrorists.
That may sound limiting but it still allows each node to send a one-time pad to the hub which it then uses to communicate securely over a classical link. The hub can then route this message to another node using another one time pad that it has set up with this second node. So the entire network is secure, provided that the central hub is also secure.
So... if I understand correctly.
We already knew how to create a perfect, unbreakable cipher. It simply requires knowing the key.
The problem, until now, has been an inability to transmit a perfectly-unbreakable cipher key, in such a way that it could not be intercepted.
This system solves that problem by relying on the principle that quantum information can't be read without being destroyed.
End points generate a key for perfect, unbreakable encryption and transmit it, using quantum information, to the central hub.
Now the central hub shares a common unbreakable key with every end point. Voila. Perfectly secure communication can take place in either direction. And two end points can communicate by going through the hub.
So as long as the hub's secure, all communications is secure.
I was wondering what Al Gore was doing with his free time and money. That guy is SO smart.
If I read the data stream by light leakage off of a fiber with a photodiode, it would not change the quantum data one bit. This is horse pucky.

Why can’t they append the packet with header that tears off on ingress and has a New one attached before egress?
Eliminates inspection, stateful or otherwise
Just thinking outloud ....

NOT QUANTUM INTERNET!!!!!
As we all know, the Internet is made of tubes, and in those tubes are CATS!
If I want to see cat videos on Internet, they had better not be dead cats!!!!! Too much uncertainty, I'll have to give up the Interwebs!
