Joint twin-field-qkd-mceliece cryptosystem

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


To overcome rate-distance-limit of QKD protocols, we propose a joint TF-QKDMcEliece scheme in which TF-QKD is used for raw-key transmission while McEliececryptosystem to transmit parity bits for information reconciliation. Proposed scheme is able to achieve record distance of 1127 km, thus significantly outperforming TF-QKD schemes.
