About this webinar

Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) is a hot topic in research for its security, performance, integration into optical networks and satellite systems, and integration into security architectures in combination with other cryptographic primitives. Many scientists and engineers want to work with an industrialized, yet accessible and open QKD system to save time and effort in setting up their labs.

In this webinar, we will discuss several potential lab setups consisting of QKD systems with external single photon detectors (SPDs).

Access to the raw and intermediate data of the QKD protocol and control over the optical and electronic parameters of the QKD system allow research in several directions, such as:

  • Gray box testing according to some international (draft) standards
  • High performance testing with superconducting nanowire SPDs
  • Integration in optical networks with WDM
  • Hybridization with post-quantum cryptography
  • Hands-on teaching and training of QKD post-processing and protocols
