Abstract:
Quantum key distribution security is based on the fact that one can not
get full information from the set of nonorthogonal quantum states. As
an important example of such states, coherent states are of high
interest, since weak laser pulses are easy for practical implementation.
These states and fiber lines with losses used by legitimate users give
an eavesdropper new attack opportunities.
