Security of Practical Time-Reversed EPR Quantum Key Distribution

  •  Inamori

Abstract. We propose a proof of the security of a time-reversed EPR quantum key distribution protocol against enemies with unlimited computational power. The considered protocol uses interactive key distillation, and the proof holds for implementations using imperfect photon sources.

Key words. Quantum cryptography, Quantum key distribution.
