This allowed for private communication with the other forces that could not be intercepted. The same concept is now being applied to the intranet systems that work with the companies to maintain security while still taking advantage of the computer based company communication.
In essence the intranet is nothing more than a small chunk of internet capabilities that are not hooked to the global lines. An intranet is a hook up of all computers in a company to allow for the speedy delivery of messages and other information on a computer. The safety that comes with the intranet is vast. The system is not attached in anyway to an outside system like you find with the internet. This way there is no way that a hacker can gain access to the system unless he or she is physically inside the building.
