Quantum bit commitment • Communication between mistrustful parties • Basis of other protocols, e. g. quantum coin flipping 0? 0 29 -39 -5 • Alice should commit to a message and not be able to change it. • Bob should not be able to decode the message until Alice reveals it. • Quantum bit-commitment with arbitrarily good security is impossible • Qutrits offer the best-known BC security levels, whereas qubits do not!

Quantum bit commitment A Simulated Purification Protocol Uses an entangled, two-part system: (a) the proof and (b) the token subsystems. Assumption: initial state is only source of imperfection. Step 1: Alice starts with our experimentally measured two-qutrit state. Re(r) Spekkens and Rudolph, PRA 65, 012310 (2001) Im(r) Langford et al. , quant-ph/0312072

Quantum bit commitment Step 4: Alice sends the proof subsystem to Bob to complete the BC protocol. He decodes the message with a two-qutrit projective measurement: Distinguishability of token states limits Alice’s control (trace-distance): Non-orthogonal token states limit Bob’s possible knowledge gain (fidelity):
