Scientists have taken what they say is a big step towards an intrinsically secure computer network which banks and other institutions could use to transmit data without risk of hacking. By Clive Cookson, Science Editor Published: December 28 2004 02:00 Last updated: December 28 2004 02:00 Toshiba Research Europe is one of several laboratories around the world racing to commercialise quantum cryptography, a technology that uses quantum mechanics to generate unbreakable codes. The Cambridge-based company says it has produced the first system robust enough to run uninterruptedly for long periods without human intervention. The Toshiba researchers have tested the system with MCI, the international telecommunications company, and plan next year to carry out trials with financial institutions in London.
