## Towards Proving the Existence of “Bound” Information

### Renato Renner and Stefan Wolf

IEEE International Symposium on Information Theory — ISIT 2002, IEEE, pp. 103, Jun 2002, This is the Proceedings version of [RenWol02a].

We show that information-theoretically secure key agreement and quantum distillation are strongly related. This leads to new evidence for the existence of bound information, i.e., correlated information not useful for the generation of a secret key.
