The encryption method published in the American Physical Society journal http://journals.aps.org/prx/ab... and filed as a patent entitled "Encoding Data Using Dynamic System Coupling," transmits and receive multiple encrypted signals simultaneously, creating an unlimited number of possibilities for the shared encryption key and making it virtually impossible to decrypt using traditional methods. One of the researchers, Peter McClintock, called http://www.lancaster.ac.uk/new... the encryption scheme "nearly unbreakable.""
