Download Quantum Cryptography and Secret-Key Distillation by Gilles van Assche PDF

By Gilles van Assche

Quantum cryptography (or quantum key distribution) is a state of the art procedure that exploits homes of quantum mechanics to assure the safe trade of mystery keys. This 2006 textual content introduces the foundations and strategies of quantum cryptography, atmosphere it within the wider context of cryptography and defense, with particular specialise in secret-key distillation. The booklet begins with an summary bankruptcy, progressing to classical cryptography, info thought (classical and quantum), and functions of quantum cryptography. The dialogue strikes to secret-key distillation, privateness amplification and reconciliation suggestions, concluding with the protection rules of quantum cryptography. the writer explains the actual implementation and safety of those platforms, permitting engineers to gauge the suitability of quantum cryptography for securing transmission of their specific program. With its combination of primary idea, implementation options, and information of modern protocols, this booklet could be of curiosity to graduate scholars, researchers, and practitioners in electric engineering, physics, and computing device science.
