Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) and Commodity Security Protocols: Introduction and Integration
, and .
International Journal of Network Security & Its Applications 1 (2): 101-112 (Juy 2009)

We present an overview of quantum key distribution (QKD), a secure key exchange method based on the quantum laws of physics rather than computational complexity. We also provide an overview of the two most widely used commodity security protocols, IPsec and TLS. Pursuing a key exchange model, we propose how QKD could be integrated into these security applications. For such a QKD integration we propose a support layer that provides a set of common QKD services between the QKD protocol and the security applications.
