update: quantum cryptography



about quantum cryptography
Quantum cryptography is the oldest and best developed application of the field of quantum information science. Although it is frequently perceived as an encryption method, it is really a scheme to securely distribute correlated random numbers between the communicating parties and thus better described as quantum key distribution (QKD). Any attempt at eavesdropping from a third party is guarantied to be detected by the laws of physics (quantum mechanics) and shows up as an increased error rate in the transmission (the QBER).

the xo laptop and quantum key distribution

Prof. Christian Kurtsiefer, Prof. Antia Lamas and others from the
Quantum Information Technology Lab
Quantum Optics Section
Department of Physics
National University of Singapore
2 Science Drive 3
117542 Singapore
have been at the 24C3, giving a lecture on Quantum Cryptography and Possible Attacks (Video) and demonstrating the hardware of a full working kit developed in the National University of Singapore for entanglement based QKD over a free space channel.

That device is accessible via usb and was built up at the ccc on the first floor. They got interested in the xo, sj gave them a few to play, and they started implementing their software for quantum key distribution.

After a few hours of tinkering with the kernel config, timezones (the xo's had to be synchronized with an accuracy of at least 0.5 sec) and software dependencies, they successfully tested the first 'entanglement based quantum key distribution' between xo laptops (Sa, 29.12.07)! And yes, they enjoyed it! : )

Greeting for the day!!

I am new to this site. I found loads of useful information here. Please accept my little contribution towards community. I would like to share some [url=http://www.weightrapidloss.com/lose-10-pounds-in-2-weeks-quick-weight-loss-tips]quick weight loss tips[/url]. If you wish to know how to lose 10 lb in a week, you are believably not looking for a basic diet and work out plan. You can lose weight with a common diet and workout plan, Still this takes a lot of time doing intense cardio exercises and sticking with a strict diet. Here I will outline the exact steps that I took to lose 10 pounds in just a workweek.

1. Keep Distance from all deep-fried nutrients for the week
2. Drink an 8oz glass of grapefruit with breakfast every day. (this speeds up your metabolism)
3. Take reasonable portions (stop consuming when you are full)
4. Instead of eating 3 big a meals a day, eat 5-6 smaller meals to keep your metabolism up and keep your body burning fat.
5. Do not eat anything after 9pm. Calories do not burn, when you eat so late.
6. Get plenty of sleep every night. Not taking adequate sleep causes been proven to be a leading factor to the body storing excess fat.
7. Utilise a body/colon clean for the 7 days. This will get rid of unnecessary weight stored close to the tummy area as well as cleanse your body of harmfull pollutants that makes you store fat and feel tired. Flush away excess pounds around the stomach area that otherwise would be hard to lose.
8. I reccomend you using Acai Berry Diet Pills. This one is tested to work, and you can get a free trial.
9. For those individuals who wish to burn fat quickly, avoid intoxicant.
10[url=http://www.weightrapidloss.com/lose-10-pounds-in-2-weeks-quick-weight-loss-tips].[/url] A low GI diet is an excellent method of burning fat quickly.
