In a recent paper,

Side-Channel-Free Quantum Key Distribution, by Samuel L. Braunstein and Stefano Pirandola. Phys. Rev. Lett. 108, 130502 (2012). doi:10.1103/PhysRevLett.108.130502, arXiv:1109.2330,

the authors repeatedly claim that

the dual teleportation channel act(s) as an ideal Hilbert space filter[...]

What do they mean by a Hilbert space filter?

How does teleportation act as a Hilbert space filter?
