Quantum key distribution and cryptography: a survey

09311.AlleaumeRomain.Paper.2361.pdf (0.5 MB)


I will try to partially answer, based on a review on recent work, the following question:

Can QKD and more generally quantum information be useful to cover some practical security requirements in current (and future) IT infrastructures ?

I will in particular cover the following topics

- practical performances of QKD
- QKD network deployment - SECOQC project
- Capabilities of QKD as a cryptographic primitive - comparative advantage with other solution, in order to cover practical security requirements
- Quantum information and Side-channels
- QKD security assurance
- Thoughts about "real" Post-Quantum Cryptography
