Security of continuous-variable quantum key distribution against canonical attacks

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We investigate the performance of Gaussianmodulated coherent-state QKD protocols in the presence of canonical attacks, which are collective Gaussian attacks resulting in Gaussian channels described by one of the possible canonical forms. We present asymptotic key rates and then we extend the results to the finite-size regime using a recently-developed toolbox for composable security.
