AB - To solve the problem of hiding quantum information in simplified
subsystems, Modi et al. [1] introduced the concept of quantum masking.
Quantum masking is the encoding of quantum information by composite
quantum states in such a way that the quantum information is hidden to the
subsystem and spreads to the correlation of the composite systems. The concept
of quantum masking was developed along with a new quantum impossibility
theorem, the quantum no-masking theorem. The question of whether a quantum
state can be masked has been studied by many people from the perspective of the
types of quantum states, the number of masking participants, and error correction
codes. Others have studied the relationships between maskable quantum states,
the deterministic and probabilistic masking of quantum states, and the problem
of probabilistic masking. Quantum masking techniques have been shown to
outperform previous strategies in quantum bit commitment, quantum multi-party
secret sharing, and so on.
