quantum entanglement in secure communications

quantum entanglement may lead to a method of secure communications.

the theory goes--if you can entangle two particles so they influence each other, and use that as a medium for transfer, any attempt to monitor or tap the system would be detectable by the effects the attack would have on the paired particle.

an interesting thought, and by the looks of this paper, they've successfully performed the entanglement procedure (though they're still, admittedly far from using this as a new communications medium). stanford has an interesting article with a little more of the subjects history.

quantum mechanics are showing some promise.
