**Visual Cryptography and Its Applications**

by **Jonathan Weir, WeiQi Yan** - **BookBoon** , **2012**

Visual cryptography provides a technique by which one secret can be distributed into two or more shares. When the shares are xeroxed onto transparencies and then superimposed, the original secret can be discovered without computer participation.

**A brief introduction of quantum cryptography for engineers**

by **Bing Qi, Li Qian, Hoi-Kwong Lo** - **arXiv** , **2010**

We present the principles behind quantum key distribution and discuss a few well-known QKD protocols. We focus more on the implementation of QKD protocols rather than security analysis. Another topic covered here is the security of QKD systems.

**Quantum Cryptography**

by **N. Gisin, G. Ribordy, W. Tittel, H. Zbinden** - **arXiv** , **2001**

Quantum cryptography could well be the first application of quantum mechanics at the individual quanta level. The fast progress in theory and experiments over the recent years are reviewed, with emphasis on open questions and technological issues.
