The Fake Calibration Attack allows a calibration that balances the Standard Quantum Limit for all the optical path in the experiment (differential Standard Quantum Limit is ≈ 0.39 dB) allowing Eve to acquire ≈ 0.0671 for a particular information quadrature which establishes a Quantum Bit Error Rate ≈ 5.8%. As a final result, the balancing of the Standard Quantum Limit for both states of polarization signals allows maintaining the overall Quantum Bit Error Rate at a particular value ≈ 3%, which implies an important basis for detecting a potential spy considering the minimum Quantum Bit Error Rate.</span></p>}, number={2 Mar-Apr}, journal={Revista Mexicana de Física}, author={Lopez-Leyva, J.
