Toward secure communication using intra-particle entanglement

Toward secure communication using intra-particle entanglement We explore the use of the resource of intra-particle entanglement for secure quantum key distribution in the device-independent scenario. By virtue of the local nature of such entanglement, Bell tests must be implemented locally, which leads to a natural decoupling of device errors from channel errors. We consider a side-channel attack on the sender’s state preparation device, for which the intra-particle entanglement-based scheme is shown to be more secure than the one that uses separable states. Of practical relevance is the fact that such entanglement can be easily generated using linear optics. Quantum Information Processing Springer Journals
