Upper bounds for private communication over quantum channels can be derived by adopting channel simulation, protocol stretching, and relative entropy of entanglement. All these ingredients have led to single-letter upper bounds to the secret-key capacity which can be directly computed over suitable resource states. For bosonic Gaussian channels, the tightest upper bounds have been derived by employing teleportation simulation over asymptotic resource states, namely, the asymptotic Choi matrices of these channels. In this work, we adopt a different approach. We show that teleporting over an analytical class of finite-energy resource states allows us to closely approximate the ultimate bounds for increasing energy, so as to provide increasingly tight upper bounds to the secret-key capacity of one-mode phase-insensitive Gaussian channels. We then show that an optimization over the same class of resource states can be used to bound the maximum secret-key rates that are achievable in a finite number of channel uses.
