Objet : Re: [Qirg] [For information] Should Quantum Key Distribution be Used for Secure Communications ?

This paper makes a big deal of needing a point-to-point connection for QKD, but does not take into account the possibility of using quantum repeaters (maybe because the paper only considers technology that is currently available?)
