LDPC Error Correction for Gb/s QKD

Author(s)
Alan Mink, Anastase Nakassis
Low Density Parity Check (LDPC) error correction is a one-way algorithm that has become popular for quantum key distribution (QKD) post-processing. Graphic

Polar codes in a QKD Environment

Author(s)
Anastase Nakassis, Alan Mink
Polar coding is the most recent encoding scheme in the quest for error correction codes that approaches the Shannon limit, has a simple structure, and admits

Practical Strategies for QKD Key Production

Author(s)
Alan Mink, Anastase Nakassis
We present the quantum key distribution (QKD) secure key ratio expression in a form that exposes the parameters that affect the Reconciliation (error correction

LDPC for QKD Reconcilation

Author(s)
Alan Mink, Anastase Nakassis
We present the Low Density Parity Check (LDPC) forward error correction algorithm adapted for the Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) protocol in a form readily

Is Quantum Cryptography Provably Secure?

Author(s)
Anastase Nakassis, Joshua C. Bienfang, Paul M. Johnson, Alan Mink, D J. Rogers, Xiao Tang, Carl J. Williams
Quantum cryptography asserts that shared secrets can be established over public channels in such a way that the total information of an eavesdropper can be made

Quantum Key Distribution System Operating at Sifted-Key Rate Over 4 Mbit/s1

Author(s)
Xiao Tang, Lijun Ma, Alan Mink, Anastase Nakassis, Hai Xu, Barry J. Hershman, Joshua C. Bienfang, David H. Su, Ronald F. Boisvert, Charles W. Clark, Carl J. Williams
A complete fiber-based polarization encoding quantum key distribution (QKD) system based on the BB84 protocol has been developed at National Institute of

Quantum key distribution at GHz transmission rates

Author(s)
Alessandro Restelli, Joshua C. Bienfang, Alan Mink, Charles W. Clark
Quantum key distribution (QKD) channels are typically realized by transmitting and detecting single photons, and therefore suffer from dramatic reductions in

A Quantum Network Manager That Supports A One-Time Pad Stream

Author(s)
Alan Mink, Lijun Ma, Anastase Nakassis, Haolang Xu, Oliver T. Slattery, Barry J. Hershman, Xiao Tang
We have begun to expand the NIST quantum key distribution (QKD) system into a quantum network to support secure cryptography. We are starting with a simple

Demonstration of an Active Quantum Key Distribution Network

Author(s)
Xiao Tang, Lijun Ma, Alan Mink, Anastase Nakassis, Hai Xu, Barry J. Hershman, Joshua Bienfang, David H. Su, Ronald F. Boisvert, Charles W. Clark, Carl J. Williams
We previously demonstrated a high speed, point to point, quantum key distribution (QKD) system with polariztion coding over a fiber link, in which the resulting
