SplitPath is a new application for the easy, well-known and provably secure one-time pad encryption scheme. Two problems hinder the one-time pad scheme from being applied in the area of secure data communication: the random generation and the distribution of this random data. SplitPath exploits the flexibility of code mobility in active networks to address these problems. Especially the random generation is studied in more detail.
