Abstract: Quantum key distribution (QKD) promises secure key agreement by using quantum mechanical systems. We argue that QKD will be an important part of future cryptographic infrastructures. It can provide long-term confidentiality for encrypted information without reliance on computational assumptions. Although QKD still requires authentication to prevent man-in-the-middle attacks, it can make use of either information-theoretically secure symmetric key authentication or computationally secure public key authenticati… Show more

“…As pointed out in [48], long-term security is needed in many specific application scenarios, such as the protection of medical records, industrial secrets and military or governmental classified informations. However, offering long-term security for highly sensitive data is not something that can be guaranteed by today's computationally secure schemes.…”
