Entropic uncertainty relations and their connections to quantum key distribution protocolsPublic
Downloadable Contentopen in viewer
Quantum key distribution (QKD) protocols, processes which allow two parties to exchange a secret key by means of information encoded in qubits, are promising alternatives to classical cryptographic protocols. The security of these protocols can be analyzed using entropic uncertainty relations (EURs), which allow bounds to be placed on the amount of knowledge an eavesdropper can gain about the key by intercepting the qubits in transit. This report focuses on a generalization of the original EUR due to Maassen and Uffink by Berta et al. and explores its validity for several types of bipartite quantum states.
