Chris Fuchs, the leading expert on the foundation of quantum mechanics, comments on the veil of secrecy descending on quantum(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

crypto in a 2002 PC Magazine article. Here is a quote from the

article:

"Drawing on the seemingly magical principles of quantum mechanics—the

physics associated with very small particles—it allows two people to

exchange encryption keys over a public network, use those keys to

encode their correspondence, and know that the correspondence is

completely secure."

I am sure that Chris Fuchs does not believe that quantum crypto

is "magic". It is not magic and it is deterministic. The article
