In this day and age, the Internet provides the biggest linkage of information, personal data and information, social contact facilities, entertainment and electronic repository for all things including software downloads and tools, online books and technical descriptions, music and movies - both legal and illegal [Clarke, 1994]. With the increasing bandwidth in the last few years worldwide, it is possible to access the so-called "Triple-Play-Solutions" - Voice over lP, High-Speed-Internet and Video on Demand. More than 100 million subscribers have signed on across Asia, Europe, and the Americas in 2007, and growth is likely to continue steadily in all three. As broadband moves into the mainstream, it is reshaping the telecommunications, cable and Internet access industrie [Beardsley, Scott and Doman, Andrew, and EdinMC Kinsey, Par, 2003]. Cisco [Cisco, 2012], one of the biggest network companies, will expect more than 966 exabytes (nearly 1 zettabyte) per year or 80.5 exabytes per month in 2015 and the "Global IP traffic has increased eightfold over the past 5 years, and will increase fourfold over the next 5 years. Overall, IP traffic will grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 32 percent from 2010 to 2015" . More and more types of sensible data flow between different recipients. News from around the world are transferred within seconds from the one end to the other end of the world, and affect the financial market, stock exchange [Reuters, 2012] and also bring down whole governments. For instance, worldwide humoil might ensue if a hacker broke into the web-server of an international newspaper or news channel like N-TV in Germany or BBC in England and displayed messages of a political revolution in Dubai or the death of the CEO from Microsoft or IBM.
