I am having a hard time understanding why MDI-QKD is truly measurement device independent. My current vision is that Charlie (the one who performs the Bell state measurements) is simply sampling the qubits Alice and Bob sent: the ones for which the measurement does not fail should have certain correlations.

But why is this schema imune against all detector side channels?
