    with absolutely no chance of being intercepted.

    History has shown us that this is impossible. Not only do detection methods become more effective there is always the bigger problem. IE that the message is sent using the latest technology but it is sent by a human being. Anything that involves human input is always susceptible to errors.

    Expanding on this, as the technology used to obscure the message is created by humans there is always the chance of a zero-day flaw in the concept.

    Also, the article states:-


    "It solves for how many bits of message a sender can pack into a certain interval of time in order for the message to always appear like background noise to any detector currently in existence."

    Using anonymous nyms with remailers, with all connections via Tor, and alt.anonymous.messages as shared inbox is arguably close enough to that "ideal". And it doesn't rely on bleeding-edge technology. The major weakness is its unpopularity, or rather, that it's too hard to use. That could be fixed, however. Tor relays could also host remailers. And someone could write a Thunderbird plug-in.
