The fundamental properties of quantum information and its applications to computing and cryptography have been greatly illuminated by considering information-theoretic tasks that are provably possible or impossible within non-relativistic quantum mechanics.  In this talk I describe a general framework for defining tasks within (special) relativistic quantum theory and illustrate it with examples from relativistic quantum cryptography.
