Book 15: Delegates and Delegation — Part II: Conflict


NARRATOR: Aboard the Chesapeake...

BALA-AMIN: Chester, what happened?

CHESTER: To what do you refer?  Per your orders, I did not observe the content of the feed.

BALA-AMIN: The screen went blank for half an hour, but I sat patiently.  Then it flashed garbage for half a second, before settling into steady output from Sorlie.  I missed the whole reveal.

CHESTER: She was being jammed.  Her data cached locally, and then uploaded all at once.  Since you configured the screen cache to auto-scrub, the upload was lost.

Summary: you made the secret absolutely leak-proof on our end.

BALA-AMIN: That's not the level of data security I was hoping for.
