Secure: Withdrawn Because Insecure

The authors of a study describing “Unconditionally Secure Quantum Coin Tossing” withdrew the study because, they say, the scheme is insecure. Details:

Unconditionally Secure Quantum Coin Tossing via Entanglement Swapping

Comments: Withdraw. The scheme presented is insecure

ABSTRACT: An unconditionally secure quantum cion [sic] tossing protocol for two remote participants via entangled swapping is pre- sented. The security of this protocol is guaranteed by the nonlocal property of quantum entanglement and the classical complexity.
