Work Has Begun on the World’s First Quantum Enigma Machine
http://bit.ly/2cTZWi7

Quantum physicists have long thought it possible to send a perfectly secure message using a key that is shorter than the message itself. The University of Rochester’s new quantum enigma machine is taking data encryption to a whole new level. “While our device is not 100 percent secure, due to photon loss,” said Lum, “it does show that data locking in message encryption is far more than a theory.”
