1. A secure transport system for transporting secure packets from a first node to a second node, comprising:

  • a first node that creates secure packets, wherein each secure packet contains identical retrieval information;

    multiple secure relays that receive secure packets and non secure packets from multiple nodes or other secure relays, wherein said multiple secure relays are capable of identifying retrieval information in each secure packet, wherein each of said multiple secure relays forwards secure packets to another of said multiple secure relay and forwards non-secure packets to destination relays, end wherein said multiple secure relays forward secure packets to the second node when a retrieval condition has been indicated, and wherein each of said multiple secure relays forwards secure packets to another of said multiple secure relays when the retrieval condition has not been indicated; and

    a second node that creates a retrieval condition related to said retrieval information in said multiple secure packets and receives the secure packets, wherein said first or second nodes are not associated with said multiple secure relays.
