Paper Abstract

Quantum mechanics is well known for being counter-intuitive or even bizarre. Now, it can also be useful for practical applications. Quantum cryptography could be the first application of quantum mechanics at the individual quanta level. It takes advantage ofthe Heisenberg uncertainties to provide an absolutely secure communication scheme.
