Quantum cryptographic schemes use fundamental properties of quantum mechanics to ensure the protection of random number keys.1 In particular the act of measurement in quantum mechanics inevitably disturbs the system. Further more, for single quanta such as a photon, simultaneous measurements of noncommuting variables are forbidden.
