A simple coherent attack and practical security of differential phase shift quantum cryptography

Abstract: The differential phase shift quantum key distribution protocol reveals good security against such powerful attacks as unambiguous state discrimination and beam splitting attacks. Its complete security analysis is complex due to high dimensions of the supposed spaces and density operators. In this paper, we consider a particular and conceptually simple coherent attack, available in practical implementations. The main condition for this attack is the length of used coherent state tuples of order 812. We show that under this condition, no high level of practical distance between legitimate users can be achieved.
