    Can't read the paper...dang. How does my institution not have a subscription to Science? Have to check with the library.

    The quantum server performs calculations, but has no means to find out what it is doing – a functionality not known to be achievable in the classical world.
    ... but, alas, functionality that is not at all uncommon in the corporate world ... or so it would seem if you were to believe the CEOs' and accountants' testimonies!

    Shhh! Don't tell the NSA!

    (What good is encryption anyway? It only protects in transit. The Watchers just wait until you decrypt and read the plaintext "over shoulders", or do the same before your correspondent encrypts. They can even use the piezo buzzer on your motherboard as a microphone to pick up the distinctive sounds of a manual typewriter being used in the same room.)

    It is still better than nothing, at least it takes professionals.

    One time pads and dead letter drops. Then they have to get their hands dirty and waterboard the information out of you.

    Or not as the case may be.

    Quantum mechanics enables perfectly secure cloud computing


    The only secure cloud is the one where you have physical access, and control. If you communicate to anybody else, you have to have trust, and any government, see for example the US, can force them to give local access, master key, do a MITM with certificate etc... QM encryption is a false sense of security, the most likely breach will be inside either the targeted cloud provider computer.

    Sugar daddy comes in the front door.

    http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=backdoor%20man

    1. backdoor man
    n. a man who services married/committed women i.e. the other guy. The original meaning derives from blues lingo and refers to the guy who comes in through the backdoor of the house, it has nothing to do with anal sex.

    Whoever wrote that definition clearly wasn't a back-door man, or a woman who had one.

    It is the double-entendre that makes it more than just a throw-away phrase. I am actually surprised and somewhat embarrassed to have to explain such matters in this sometimes surprisingly naive place.

    Look, someone even said "double entendre" in the description.

    "What the men don't know, the little girls understand."

    Next, mamo will probably try to get us to believe she didn't have a life sized poster of the Lizard King on the back of her bedroom door when she was pubescent.

    Actually it was Robert Plant. And my tramp stamp reads "Exit Only, Severe Damage On Entry". So, go fantasize elsewhere.

    I'm all for appropriate signage. It's always nice to know just what you are getting into.
