I see a potentially insurmountable post-9/11 challenge, encryption.  
The current paranoia makes it hard to convince anyone to send accurate  
positions of critical assets over an open channel, all the worse that  
the posits are made instantly available on the internet. Before  
investing efforts in meeting the other challenges, how would this  
potential deal-breaker be solved?
