We study the all-optical control of the quantum fluctuations of a light beam via a combination of single-atom cavity quantum electrodynamics (CQED) and electromagnetically induced transparency (EIT). Specifically, the EIT control field is used to tune the CQED transition frequencies in and out of resonance with the probe light. In this way, photon blockade and antiblockade effects are employed to produce sub-Poissonian and super-Poissonian light fields, respectively. The achievable quantum control paves the way towards the realization of a prototype of a novel quantum transistor which amplifies or attenuates the relative intensity noise of a light beam. Its feasibility is demonstrated by calculations using realistic parameters from recent experiments. (AU)
