In this paper, we consider the problem of entanglement verification across the quantum memories of any two nodes of a quantum network. Its solution can be a means for detecting (albeit not preventing) the presence of intruders that have taken full control of a node, either to make a denial-of-service attack or to reprogram the node. Looking for strategies that only require local operations and classical communication (LOCC), we propose two entanglement verification protocols characterized by…
