Since we don't have a sub forum for SCIENCES...I'll just share this here, I suppose.

The basic idea here is that the act of measuring a quantum object, such as a photon, always changes it. So any attempt to eavesdrop on a quantum message cannot fail to leave telltale signs of snooping that the receiver can detect. That allows anybody to send a “one-time pad” over a quantum network which can then be used for secure communication using conventional classical communication.

Not sure how useful this will be with modern networks. Intercepting messages just requires hardware in the network that reads the message, and then duplicates it and sends the copy on it's way in place of the original.

Natural Citizen, could you place this science tidbit with all its implications in the INDIVIDUAL RIGHTS & LIBERTIES forum here?
