In this paper, the authors present a solution to ensure secure communication in computer networks by using secret sharing and multiple parties mistrusting each other instead of relying on a \"Trusted party\" or a \"Web of trust\". In contrast to other solutions requiring asymmetric encryption, this paper can provide security even after any possible advance in cryptanalysis and even if unlimited calculation power was available to attack it. But this solution requires the computer network to have special properties. The S-Network, a trustworthy repository, is presented as a potential application.
