FRIAS Research Project

Resources for Quantum Information Protection

The project Resources for Quantum Information Protection put forwarded with acronym ‘REQIP’ aims to develop the theoretical and practical framework of secure quantum information processing by investigating the link between fundamentals and applications. It is structured in two main lines, i) improving the security analysis of device-independent quantum information protection and characterizing those resources that can be used to certify general security, and ii) developing methods of characterizing eavesdropping power. To support these two objectives, we will develop related mathematical tools and investigate general frameworks of information-theoretic characterization of quantum theory.
