Quantum Cryptography

I suspect there are two reasons for QKD to be still alive.
First of all, the cost difference between quantum and normal
approaches is so enormous that a lot of ignorant decision makers
actually believe that they get something extra for this money.

  If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people
  will eventually come to believe it.

The second reason is ``rollback'' (is it right term?): you pay
$100000 from your company funds to a QKD vendor, and they
covertly give $50000 back to you.
