Dribble update - beware invisible photon

A bit of an update, especially where quantum crypto is concerned.

Three interesting papers, first off a method for eavsedropping on optical quantum photon communication, don't worry, it also covers how to make protocols more secure.

Secondly a (small) advance on quantum entanglement, not yet to a useable scale for secure communications but interesting none the less.

Thirldy Alice and Bob talk safe keys even when not properly entagled. NB. A bit heavy n maths in this one.

Lastly, out of Hilbert space and into Dilbert space it is good to see good old Kevin D. Mitnick meeting lots of people worried about security and getting him to look under their companies bonnets ;)
