A new "unbreakable" encryption
How many times have we seen this. The last time I did it was with blu-ray.

Encrypted data, including a videoconference, was transmitted via standard optical fibre to six different centres, some as far as 82 kilometres (50 miles).[/QUOTE]
In the works. But it will be small.
