    Very nice to see. It is interesting as CBC is owned by the Canadian Government and is a Crown Corporation.

    here in the uk we have the good old royal mail and any mail or packages are never scanned or opened.If the passing of confidential data is such a high priority then i cannot think of a better way to send it then the old fashioned way of general postal services.

    Everyone seems to have overlooked this.
    Case of cant see the woods for the trees lol.

    Sure they may be less likely to be noticed, but cracking it would be way easier.

    Not if I use my decoder ring! ;)

    Seriously though one time pads could do but they are ridiculously hard to deal with properly.

    I read the article. Of interest was the mention of Go Public. They were the ones who busted Royal Bank for abusing the Foreign Worker program. Basically, RBC was terminating the jobs of Canadian workers in favour of resources who had come offshore. It made the news, and several of the whistle blowers were protected.

    So the boss wants you to train the offshore guy while you lose your job ? Several heads rolled over that one. :D
