@article{Das2021UniversalLO, title={Universal limitations on quantum key distribution over a network}, author={Siddhartha Das and Stefan B{\"a}uml and Marek Winczewski and Karol Horodecki}, journal={ArXiv}, year={2021}, volume={abs/1912.03646} }

The possibility to achieve secure communication among trusted parties by means of the quantum entanglement is intriguing both from a fundamental and an application purpose. In this work, we show that any state (after distillation) from which a quantum secret key can be obtained by local measurements has to be genuinely multipartite entangled. We introduce the most general form of memoryless network quantum channel: quantum multiplex channels. We define and determine asymptotic and non…

The tetrahedron structure for the four-partite system via the triangle relation associated with tripartite and bipartite entanglement respectively is discussed, and for multipartite system that contains more than four parties, there is no symmetric geometric structure as that of tri- and four- partite cases.
