Abstract: We show the detector blinding attack by Lydersen et al 1 will beineffective on most single photon avalanche photodiodes APDs and certainlyineffective on any detectors that are operated correctly. The attack is onlysuccessful if a redundant resistor is included in series with the APD, or ifthe detector discrimination levels are set inappropriately.
