Quantum key distribution over optical fibre infrastructure
Klíčník, Ondřej ; Horváth, Tomáš (referee) ; Münster, Petr (advisor)
The aim of this bachelor thesis is to create a comprehensive view of the current technology of quantum key distribution (QKD) over optical fiber, in theoretical terms, a completely secure key exchange. The thesis can be divided into theoretical and practical parts. The theoretical part illuminates the reasons for the use of these systems and the fundamentals of quantum mechanics needed to understand the function of individual QKD protocols. Furthermore, the principles of operation of both the protocols and related services such as post-quantum cryptography (PQC) and quantum number generation (QRNG) are described. The last chapter is devoted to the architecture of QKD networks and describes current standards for QKD communications. In the practical part, a detailed analysis of commercially available devices is performed. Subsequently, simulation results of selected QKD protocols are presented and a custom QKD polygon is designed, built and tested.

Tomasov, Adrian ; Dejdar, Petr ; Záviška, Pavel ; Spurny, Vladimir ; Munster, Petr ; Horvath, Tomas ; Klicnik, Ondrej
The paper proposes the deployment of a perimeterand data protection system with long-term data storage in anInfluxDB time-series database enhanced by a graphical interfacebased on a Grafana dashboard. The perimeter is protected usinga fiber optic cable, and the transmitted light is analyzed by a stateof polarization analyzer detecting mechanical vibrations. Usinga simple spectrum comparison method and a threshold, it candetect a perimeter breach and generate an alert.
Quantum key distribution
Klíčník, Ondřej ; Burda, Karel (referee) ; Münster, Petr (advisor)
This thesis is indirectly related to the bachelor thesis Quantum key distribution over optical fiber infrastructure. Unlike the previous paper, the focus will be mainly on the practical application of the QKD (Quantum key distribution) system Clavis3. For this reason, physical phenomena related to practically used QKD protocols are briefly explained in the theoretical part. These are mostly based on phase coding. In particular, special attention is paid to the Coherent one-way protocol (COW) implemented in Clavis3 devices. This protocol is also compared with practical implementations of the BB84 protocol. Furthermore, the principles of other advanced QKD techniques are outlined and the phenomena in the optical fiber that may affect the quantum channel are discussed. A separate chapter is also devoted to standardization and topologies of QKD networks. Last but not least, the thesis addresses the topic of attacks against practical implementations of QKD protocols. In the practical part, measurements aimed at practical deployment of Clavis3 devices in a common communication network are performed. These include the possibility of combining a quantum channel into a single fiber together with classical channels using Wavelength-division multiplexing (WDM) and the analysis of the effect of Raman noise on the maximum communication distance. At the same time, the robustness of the system against polarization changes and fiber manipulation is verified. Finally, the performance of the system using three-state and four-state versions of the COW protocol is compared and the eavesdropping simulation module is tested.
Quantum Key Distribution Polygon
