### Qkd and de finetti theorem

1. 1. Quantum Key Distribution and de Finetti’s Theorem Matthias Christandl Institute for Theoretical Physics, ETH Zurich June 2010 Matthias Christandl Quantum Key Distribution and de Finetti’s Theorem
2. 2. Overview Introduction to Quantum Key Distribution Two tools for proving security: De Finetti’s Theorem Post-Selection Technique Summary Matthias Christandl Quantum Key Distribution and de Finetti’s Theorem
3. 3. Quantum Key Distribution Alice und Bob want to communicate in secrecy, but their phone is tapped. Alice Eve Bob phone If they share key (string of secret random numbers), Alice Eve Bob message +key -------------- cipher cipher - key -------------- message cipher is random and message secure (Vernam, 1926) Matthias Christandl Quantum Key Distribution and de Finetti’s Theorem
4. 4. Quantum Key Distribution key is as long as the message Shannon (1949): this is optimal secret communication ˆ= key distribution possible key distribution schemes: Alice and Bob meet ⇒ impractical Weaker level of security assumptions on speed of Eve’s computer (public key cryptography) assumptions on size of Eve’s harddrive (bounded storage model) Use quantum mechanical eﬀects (Bennett & Brassard 1984, Ekert 1991) Matthias Christandl Quantum Key Distribution and de Finetti’s Theorem
5. 5. Quantum Key Distribution Quantum mechanics governs atoms and photons Spin-1 2 system: points on the sphere cos θ eiϕ sin θ = cos θ|0 + eiϕ sin θ|1 ∈ C2 unit of information, the quantum bit or ”qubit” we measure a qubit along a basis if basis is {|0 , |1 }, we obtain ’0’ with probability cos2 θ. in general: express qubit in basis and consider |amplitude|2 . Matthias Christandl Quantum Key Distribution and de Finetti’s Theorem
6. 6. Quantum Key Distribution The state of two qubits: |ψ ∈ C2 ⊗ C2 , ψ||ψ = 1 |ψ = ψ00|0 ⊗ |0 + ψ01|0 ⊗ |1 + ψ10|1 ⊗ |0 + ψ11|1 ⊗ |1 = ψ00|0 |0 + ψ01|0 |1 + ψ10|1 |0 + ψ11|1 |1 each qubit is measured in basis {|0 , |1 } measurement basis {|0 |0 , |0 |1 , |1 |0 , |1 |1 } obtain ’ij’ with probability |ψij |2 . Matthias Christandl Quantum Key Distribution and de Finetti’s Theorem
7. 7. Quantum Key Distribution Entangled state of two qubits 1√ 2 (|0 A|0 B + |1 A|1 B) New basis |+ = 1 √ 2 (|0 + |1 ) |− = 1 √ 2 (|0 − |1 ) easy calculation 1 √ 2 (|0 A|0 B + |1 A|1 B) = 1 √ 2 (|+ A|+ B + |− A|− B) Alice and Bob measure in basis {|0 , |1 } ⇒ same result Alice and Bob measure in basis {|+ , |− } ⇒ same result Converse is true, too: same measurement result ⇒ they have state 1√ 2 (|0 A|0 B + |1 A|1 B) Alice and Bob can test whether or not they have the state 1√ 2 (|0 A|0 B + |1 A|1 B)! Matthias Christandl Quantum Key Distribution and de Finetti’s Theorem
8. 8. Quantum Key Distribution Assume that Alice and Bob have the state |φ AB = 1√ 2 (|0 A|0 B + |1 A|1 B) and measure in the same basis. Can someone else guess the result? No! The measurement result is secure! Total state of Alice, Bob and Eve |ψ ABE = |φ AB ⊗ |φ E , because Alice and Bob have a pure state Eve is not at all correlated with Alice and Bob! Monogamy of entanglement Matthias Christandl Quantum Key Distribution and de Finetti’s Theorem

15. 15. Quantum Key Distribution Proof works as long as |Ψ n ABC = |ψ ⊗n ABE . Alice Bob But why should Eve prepare such a state? Why not the following? Alice Bob We can assume: π|Ψ n ABC = |Ψ n ABC for all π ∈ Sn. Goal: two methods that reduce second to ﬁrst case! Matthias Christandl Quantum Key Distribution and de Finetti’s Theorem
16. 16. De Finetti’s Theorem De Finetti’s Theorem (Diaconis and Freedman, 1980) Drawing balls from an urn with or without replacement results in almost the same probability distribution.

Phys. 273, 473498 (2007) Let |Ψ n be a permutation-invariant state: π|Ψ n = |Ψ n for all π ∈ Sn, then ||ρk − i pi |ψ ψ|⊗k i ||1 ≤ const k n Matthias Christandl Quantum Key Distribution and de Finetti’s Theorem
18. 18. De Finetti’s Theorem Alice and Bob select a random sample of pairs (after pairs have been distributed!)

Matthias Christandl Quantum Key Distribution and de Finetti’s Theorem
19. 19. De Finetti’s Theorem Closer look: deviation from perfect key (due to quantum de Finetti theorem) ≈ k/n n: number of pairs that Eve distributed k: number of bits of key key rate r ≈ k/n ≈ ≈ 0 ⇒ not good enough need replacement for de Finetti theorem Renner’s exp. de Finetti theorem, involved, non-optimal Matthias Christandl Quantum Key Distribution and de Finetti’s Theorem

21. 21. Post-Selection Technique Proof: P permutation-invariant distribution on n bits: P = n k=0 pkQk. Qk equal probability for all strings with k zeros. Take P as n-fold i.i.d distribution, where ’0’ has probability r. r*n k p_k Certainly, prn ≥ 1/(n + 1) ⇒ Qrn ≤ (n + 1)Pr . Matthias Christandl Quantum Key Distribution and de Finetti’s Theorem
