Secure communication with a publicly known key — •Almut Beige1, Berthold-Georg Englert1,2, Christian Kurtsiefer3, and Harald Weinfurter1,31Max-Planck-Institut für Quantenoptik, Hans-Kopfermann-Str. 1, 85748 Garching, Germany — 2Departments of Mathematics and Physics, Texas A&M University, College Station, Texas 77843, U.

We present a scheme for direct and confidential communication between Alice and Bob, where there is no need for establishing a shared secret key first, and where the key used by Alice even will become known publicly. The communication is based on the exchange of single photons and each and every photon transmits one bit of Alice’s message without revealing any information to a potential eavesdropper.
