Is it just me — or does everyone else see an obvious hack? That is capturing the photons at the hack point and broadcasting a new matching — or edited — set of photons. How many other easy hacks do people see?"A computer in Geneva, provided by the company id Quantique, will fire photons, or particles of light, down a fiber-optic link to a receiver 62 miles away.
If anybody wanted to eavesdrop on the line, they would need to intercept the photons, which means they won't make it to the destination. The operators of the line will then know that someone is listening in."
