A brief introduction of quantum cryptography for engineers
by Bing Qi, Li Qian, Hoi-Kwong Lo
Publisher: arXiv 2010
Number of pages: 36
We present the fundamental principles behind quantum key distribution and discuss a few well-known QKD protocols. Bearing in mind that the majority of our readers are from engineering and experimental optics, we focus more on the experimental implementation of various QKD protocols rather than security analysis. Another important topic that is covered here is the study of the security of practical QKD systems.

Multiple aspects of public-key cryptography are examined. The author covers the theory of provably secure public-key cryptography and the implementation of exponentiation and multi-exponentiation. An introduction to provable security is provided.
