Abstract

The quantum key distribution playing the role of trusted carrier to augment the symmetric key distribution and is competing with public key cryptography in case of reliability and security. It is secure against unlimited computing power. In the implementation front of quantum key distribution, there is an intersection of fields like quantum physics, optics, computer science and electronics make it more complex. In this paper, we proposed Quantum key distribution technique in which traditional cryptographic techniques are not needed for mutually authenticating the keys. We proposed the base distribution center as a third party, in which both communicating parties share their bases before communication and mutually authenticate each other by transmitting a series of bits and deduce the encryption and decryption keys.
