China to launch unhackable quantum messaging service

China to launch unhackable quantum messaging serviceChina is preparing to launch a communications system that would be impossible to hack. The quantum communication system is set to be used by 200 users from government, finance and military personal in the city of Jinan.  The Jinan Institute of Quantum Technology said the technology, which was tested earlier this month, is expected to be put into commercial use in August. The network uses quantum key distribution to transmit messages. The connections are far more secure than current internet or telephone cables, which can be tapped and monitored. China is creating a 2000km quantum network from Shanghai to Beijing Credit: Alamy Quantum networks, unlike traditional systems, send messages embedded in particles of light. If any third party attempts to hack the network the quantum nature of the particles will alter the communication and cause it to be aborted, meaning the message is impossible to read or intercept. "We plan to use the network for national defence, finance and other fields, and hope to spread it out as a pilot that if successful, can be used across China and the whole world,” said Zhou Fei, assistant director of Jinan Institute of Quantum Technology, the Financial Times reported. The development of the quantum network is the latest demonstration of China's scientific stature. It comes after the Chinese Government earlier this month said it plans to be the global leader in artificial intelligence by 2030.  China has been building an impenetrable, "hack-proof" computer network since 2014. Last year it launched a "hack-proof" communications satellite.  China's 'impenetrable' computer network explained 01:13 The quantum communications network, which will be the longest in the world, will travel 2,000km from Beijing to Shanghai and pass through a message hub in Jinan. More secure communications are needed as it is thought current encryption systems will be rendered obsolete by the sheer power of advanced quantum computers. The new Jinan network cost £15 million to develop and is capable of encrypting 4,000 pieces of data a second, according to the China Daily. China's obsession with security does not extend to many of its citizens. Last week, WhatsApp users in the country reported they had been blocked from sending videos or pictures. China's block on many internet giants and social networks has been dubbed the Great Firewall. What is quantum computing?

Smugglers offer crammed big rigs as 'VIP treatment' to US

Smugglers offer crammed big rigs as 'VIP treatment' to USSAN DIEGO (AP) — When Thomas Homan, the acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, was awakened Sunday morning with news that migrants were found dead inside a sweltering tractor-trailer outside a San Antonio Walmart, his mind flashed back to 2003, when he stood at the back of a truck about 120 miles (200 kilometers) southeast of San Antonio that carried 19 dead migrants.

Did Donald Trump confirm existence of a covert CIA programme on Twitter?

Did Donald Trump confirm existence of a covert CIA programme on Twitter?Donald Trump has frequently railed against those leaking information, especially intelligence material, to the media. Now, however, it appears the president himself has inadvertently confirmed the existence of a covert CIA programme. Mr Trump issued a series of tweets attacking the Washington Post on Monday evening, including one that referred to a story about the termination of US efforts to aid rebels fighting to oust Syria's President Bashar Assad.   The Amazon Washington Post fabricated the facts on my ending massive, dangerous, and wasteful payments to Syrian rebels fighting Assad.....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 25, 2017 "The Amazon Washington Post fabricated the facts on my ending massive, dangerous, and wasteful payments to Syrian rebels fighting Assad," Mr Trump said, days after the newspaper had claimed  the president was axing a programme established by Barack Obama in 2013.  It was a move long sought for by Russia, which saw the anti-Assad programme as an assault on its interests.  Although the programme had been widely reported, its existence was understood to be officially still classified.  If the media reports are true, the President of the United States just confirmed a CIA covert action program. On Twitter. https://t.co/fEmuqHDWN9— Ned Price (@nedprice) July 25, 2017 "If the media reports are true, the President of the United States just confirmed a CIA covert action program. On Twitter," said Ned Price, a former CIA employee.  CIA: We can neither confirm nor deny any covert program. Trump: That's right cuz I ended it! CIA: ����‍♂️ https://t.co/DBrNak0zg7— Jermaine Spradley (@MrSpradley) July 25, 2017 FYI this was a "covert" CIA program. Until now, apparently: https://t.co/1ZGhKLlraghttps://t.co/v8CqjJCJ18— Kyle Griffin (@kylegriffin1) July 25, 2017 Trump confirms covert CIA program on Twitter https://t.co/NaJHC5JxBq— Blake Hounshell (@blakehounshell) July 25, 2017 Today in Trump -refers to "17 years of Obamacare" -boasts of Electoral College win to Boy Scouts -confirms covert CIA program -it's Monday— Dave Itzkoff (@ditzkoff) July 25, 2017 President apparently confirming existence of US covert program to aid anti-Assad rebels in Syria right here on Twitter https://t.co/NQy1BqLAkB— Julie Davis (@juliehdavis) July 25, 2017  US officials told the newspaper in a story published July 19 that ending the secret programme was related to Mr Trump's concerns about re-establishing a working relationship with Russia. Mr Trump is reported to have made the decision nearly a month ago, after an Oval Office meeting with national security adviser H.R. McMaster and CIA Director Mike Pompeo. Russia long saw the anti-Assad programme as an assault on its interests. Ending the plan, in addition to appeasing Russian President Vladimir Putin, is also an acknowledgment of the US's limited ability to unseat the Syrian president. Until Moscow intervened militarily on behalf of the Syrian government in 2015, the US-backed rebels had been making major gains.
