Quantum cryptography is a new method for secret communications offering the ultimate security assurance of the inviolability of a Law of Nature. In this paper we shall describe the theory of quantum cryptography, its potential relevance and the development of a prototype system at Los Alamos, which utilises the. quantum cryptography and how this technology contributes value to a defense-in -depth strategy pertaining to completely secure key distribution. The scope of this paper covers the weaknesses of modern digital cryptosystems, the fundamental concepts of quantum cryptography, the real-world implementation of this. Bachelor Thesis.

31 Mar Background/Objectives: The preferment from conventional computing to quantum computing has created new challenges in the field of cryptography. The cryptographic algorithms which ensured intractability in conventional computing surfaces serious challenge in quantum computing. Methods/Statistical. is a plug&play Quantum Key Distribution system designed specifically for research and development applications. It is the ideal tool for researchers who want to contribute to the field of quantum cryptography. It is an improved version of the pioneering Clavis system, which was the first commercial quantum key distribution. Abstract. After a short introduction to classic cryptography we explain thoroughly how quantum cryptography works. We present then an elegant experimental realization based on a self-balanced interferometer with Faraday mirrors. This phase-coding setup needs no alignment of the interferometer nor polarization control.
they are science fiction, quantum cryptography systems are now opera- tional, with prototypes protecting. Internet traffic across metropolitan areas. These systems are so novel that we can consider quantum cryptogra- phy—or, more properly, quantum key distribution (QKD)—as the third and final insight to transform. Eve. Bob.
