Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) is an innovative technology that leverages the fundamental laws of quantum mechanics to securely distribute shared secret cryptographic keys. QKD technology, when paired with the one-time pad encryption algorithm, provides the opportunity for “unconditionally secure” communications between two parties. However, QKD is a(More)
QKD is an innovative technology which exploits the laws of quantum mechanics to generate and distribute unconditionally secure cryptographic keys. While QKD offers the promise of unconditionally secure key distribution, real world systems are built from non-ideal components which necessitates the need to model and understand the impact these non-idealities(More)
POSTER ABSTRACT—Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) is an innovative technology which exploits the laws of quantum mechanics to generate and distribute unconditionally secure shared key for use in cryptographic applications. While QKD offers the promise of unconditionally secure key distribution, real world systems are built from non-ideal components which(More)
Quantum key distribution (QKD) is an innovative technology, which exploits the laws of quantum mechanics to generate and distribute unconditionally secure shared cryptographic keying material between two geographically separated parties. The unique nature of QKD that ensures eavesdropping on the key distribution channel necessarily introduces detectable(More)
