Untraceable 'Quantum Internet'

Researchers Are a Step Closer to Creating an Untraceable 'Quantum Internet'

We want it!

Fiona MacDonald | February 3, 2016

Scientists are figuring out how to create a 'quantum Internet' that will be totally secure and virtually unhackable. So secure, in fact, that even if someone did manage to listen in to your private communications, you'd immediately know about it.  
That's because the quantum Internet would store data in individual particles of light - known as photons - rather than beams of light, which are currently used to transmit information across our existing fibre optic networks.
