Hardware, Embedded Systems The world's first commercially viable quantum computer was unveiled and demonstrated today in Silicon Valley by D-Wave Systems, Inc., a privately-held Canadian firm headquartered near Vancouver. Quantum computing offers the potential to create value in areas where problems or requirements exceed the capability of digital computing, the company said. But D-Wave explains that its new device is intended as a complement to conventional computers, to augment existing machines and their market, not as a replacement for them.

The stream cannot be "touched" between sender/reciever without the payload being invalidated, that's what I was trying to get at.

Sounds like a pretty easy DoS opportunity. Just touch the stream every time and the intended recipient will never receive it.
