Once upon a time
there were Alice and Bob
and they had secrets to share. Since their first time
[pdf] introduction, Alice and Bob characters played different roles in the information coding
and technical communication
theories. I was wondering why Romeo and Juliet
was not used instead of Alice and Bob? Besides the fact that Alice and Bob suited better theorists in making the A and B abstractions more human like, I guess that they portray characters that share not only love secrets.
Alice and Bob were also
the subjects of different
Perimeter Institute (PI) lectures. A new tale of the adventure of their secrets sharing will be revealed tomorrow by PI researcher Daniel Gottesman in his public lectureQuantum Cryptography: A Tale of Secrets Hidden and Revealed Through the Laws of Physics.
I'm eager to learn what progress have been made to keep Eve out of
Alice and Bob secrets.
