Description:
Quantum mechanics, the subfield of physics that describes the behavior of very small (quantum) particles, provides the basis for a new paradigm of computing. First proposed in the 1980s as a way to improve computational modeling of quantum systems, the field of quantum computing has recently garnered significant attention due to progress in building small-scale devices. However, significant technical advances will be required before a large-scale, practical quantum computer can be achieved.

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.
