Secret Message Transmission over Quantum Channels under Adversarial Quantum Noise: Secrecy Capacity and Super-Activation

by   Holger Boche, et al.
Technische Universität München

We determine the secrecy capacities of arbitrarily varying quantum channels. Both secrecy capacity with average error probability and with maximal error probability are derived. The code we construct fulfills a stringent secrecy requirement, which is called the strong code concept.We determine when the secrecy capacity is a continuous function of the system parameters and completely characterize its discontinuity points both for average error criterion and for maximal error criterion. Furthermore, we prove the phenomenon "super-activation" for secrecy capacities of arbitrarily varying quantum channels, i.e., two quantum channels both with zero secrecy capacity, if used together, allow secure transmission with positive capacity.
