GrahamC  … having a say about very specific things on https://www.nextplatform.com/2021/03/12/taking-on-darpas-fhe-security-challenge/
That is all very well, and one can certainly appreciate the overwhelming advantage delivered to gifted parties in any sphere or environment where secrecy/the lack of general knowledge of particularly peculiar and vital information for intelligence is engaged/employed and deployed in order that something already recognised as groundbreaking and Earth shattering, … able to be both extremely disruptive and destructive and almightily creative and constructively innovative …. is not more widely made known or even just leaked to a small band of others … a chosen few.
Such however is the amongst the least of one’s present future problems, for much more of something fundamentally similar in structure but radically different in nature, and which isn’t yet recognised and shared as an internetworking thing to be fully aware and/or extremely wary of, is surely of infinitely greater concern.
You struggle and do battle with all the info and intel that you know you already have and know be out there somewhere else with someone else and held securely under encryption lock and key, whilst that which really matters is that which is shortly to be shared is only just ever revealed for the first time/is never before known anywhere.
It is not as if you were not adequately forewarned to be forearmed against it to try and enable yourselves to cope with it, though, is it? Now you have to deal with it and make deals with it in order that it doesn’t attack and destroy all that it surveys and all that you portray and hold dear …… which is certainly surely the wisest and simplest of all or any available options.
“Now what is the message there? The message is that there are no “knowns.” There are thing we know that we know. There are known unknowns. That is to say there are things that we now know we don’t know. But there are also unknown unknowns. There are things we don’t know we don’t know. So when we do the best we can and we pull all this information together, and we then say well that’s basically what we see as the situation, that is really only the known knowns and the known unknowns. And each year, we discover a few more of those unknown unknowns.
It sounds like a riddle. It isn’t a riddle. It is a very serious, important matter.
There’s another way to phrase that and that is that the absence of evidence is not evidence of absence. It is basically saying the same thing in a different way. Simply because you do not have evidence that something exists does not mean that you have evidence that it doesn’t exist. And yet almost always, when we make our threat assessments, when we look at the world, we end up basing it on the first two pieces of that puzzle, rather than all three.” …. US Secretary of Defence, Donald Rumsfeld, NATO HQ, Brussels 6 June 2002
Humanity though may have an abiding catastrophic systemic problem with the wisest and simplest of all or any available options if something Einstein and Alexandre Dumas are reported to have said is to be believed ……. “Two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I am not yet completely sure about the universe.” and “Une chose qui m’humilie profondément est de voir que le génie humain a des limites, quand la bêtise humaine n’en a pas.” which can be translated as “One thing that humbles me deeply is to see that human genius has its limits while human stupidity does not.” ……. so be prepared for some really strange shenanigans and outrageous ructions should wisdom take a dumb seat in the stands to witness madness and mayhem at play.

Secret Source Sauce ….. Still Remains Something of an Elusive Enigmatic Resource for Googling though? 🙂
Now, if that was/is in any way good and reliable, and not totally reliant upon and also vulnerable to Google knowing better than you exactly what your business and services are all about, which surely it must be pimping/pumping and dumping with such a GCPMCS facility [Google Cloud Platform Mission Critical Services], one imagines the US Department of Defence and DARPA would be beating a clear path to their door and granting them the likes of a $10 billion Joint Enterprise Defense Initiative (JEDI) contract ……… 🙂 which for all we are likely to know, they may already have done or are currently deciding on probably doing to provide such a novelty as much help as it needs to succeed.
Such would certainly be right up DARPA’s street and fully consistent with their raison d’être.
