For those interested in Crypto

The unbreakable code

I'm not sure if /. has covered this, or if anybody who reads my LJ reads /. (I don't usually) but this looks pretty cool, both because I think it's clever, and I like the idea of "If these keys are changed frequently (up to 1,000 times a second in Navajo's case), the risk that an eavesdropper without the key would be able to decrypt the data can be proved mathematically to be zero." Mathematically proven to be zero just sounds really cool.
