My Post of 31 October 2013 badly translated (see http://dumbthatway.blogspot.de/2013/09/uber-die-macht-des-wortes-und-deren_6432.html
As a big storage consultant, I created some larger storage concepts for the public and private sectors. For me it was always important, that these concepts allow for an integrated system-to-system encryption. This does not always optimze the sales margin and I left the company after a few years - profit is even more important than safety. Somehow, I 'm probably more of an intellectual than a sales person. But you cannot support a family on mathematical ideas; this was not even possible for the early inventors of the digital world; Leibniz died impoverished , Konrad- Zuse used his own money to finance his research.
The large storage system manufacturers offer for more than 10 years the technology to encrypt data between storage center. This is not a technical problem anymore, rather an organizational. Well - I think my storage concepts would have payed off for some internet companieshttp://www.nytimes.com/2013/11/26/technology/a-peephole-for-the-nsa.html
Is a large networked hierarchical storage structures with central data storage system inherently insecure / unstable? I think this question can be translated in a mathematical and a biological analogy and then, with appropriate expertise ( probably not in a master or doctoral thesis , sociopolitical study, White or Redpaper) answered . But these days it is more likely to get research funding from the DFG for the recovery of energy from manure or funding for a sociological study on digital data, than for a question which is not addressed by an acedamic institution.
