Following Schumacher and Westmoreland, we address the problem of the capacity of a quantum wiretap channel. We first argue that, in the definition of the so-called “quantum privacy,” Holevo quantities should be used instead of classical mutual informations. The argument actually shows that the security condition in the definition of a code should limit the wiretapper’s Holevo quantity. Then we show that this modified quantum privacy is the optimum achievable rate of secure transmission.
