As opposed to the USSR learning about the bomb via espionage.

By "up front", I don't mean publicly; rather, confidential diplomatic discussions among a select (senior) few among the Allied governments.

Truman told Stalin that we had a powerful new weapon without giving details. But Stalin knew what he was talking about.
