that is not what i meant. you can build secure/ authenticated/ 
tamper-proof communication between two systems with crypto, even if it
is mathmatically not 100% secure, but only if you can trust both ends of
the communication. if the attacker is the one your talking to you are
lost. and this has nothing to do with crypto or computers or technical
solutions, but is a general thing.

ps: if you find a solution though, please tell me. there are other
fields where you could make billions with it ;)
