The number of elements on a IC chip is quadrupling every three years, but computer performance as a whole is quadrupling annually. In this paper, we demonstrate how nanotechnology and other closely related technologies reinforce each other to generate that higher growth rate, which has prevailed for the last half century and which has resulted in an astounding improvement in performance of 1024 over that time-frame. These gains have made the digital revolution possible. The potential benefits to society of the digital revolution exceed our imagination, but to realize those benefits we must use competition among relevant technologies to prevent undesirable side-effects. Superdistribution, the indispensable technology for gaining those benefits, depends on the availability of reliable, tamper-proof systems whose security is ensured through physical means. The Strong Tamper-Resistant Module (STRM), an improved version of our Tamper-Resistant Module (TRM), achieves that objective by using strong protection to ensure that only the possessor of a secret key can modify its behavior. Not even the STRM designers, manufacturers or maintainers can gain unauthorized access to the module or modify its information or operation in any way. This level of security is what is needed for legal contracts and for system logs.
