Abstract
Quantum theory and the relativistic no-signalling principle both give ways of controlling information, in the sense that someone who creates information somewhere in space-time can rely on strict limits both on how much information another party can extract and on where they can obtain it. An increasingly long list of interesting cryptographic applications exploit the power of the no-signalling principle as well as the properties of quantum information. I describe recent work in this area, including secure protocols for bit commitment, quantum tagging (quantum position authentication) and new intrinsically relativistic cryptographic tasks.
