Improvement in secure transmission of information is of the utmost importance for governments, corporations, and individuals. Everyday we encrypt our financial transactions, transmits our medical records, and secure our critical infrastructure with techniques that make assumptions that certain mathematical problems are difficult for computers to solve. But with ever increasing computing power, improvements in decryption algorithms, and in the advent of quantum computing, these assumptions are no longer justifiable. Our encryption is fast approaching its expiry date.
In comparison we can improve security with quantum key distribution. By transmitting single particles of light between users we can exploit their fragile nature to detect the presence of eavesdroppers, and in their absence, share completely random keys with an unlimited lifetime. These digital keys can be used in one-time-pad for the ultimate security or to complement and improve the security of classical security techniques.
