Abstract

Communication between a sender and receiver can be made secure by encrypting the message using public or private shared keys. Quantum key distribution utilizes the unclonability of a quantum state to securely generate a key between the two parties [1]. However, without some way of authentication of either the sender or the receiver, a man-in-the-middle attack with an eavesdropper mimicking the receiver can break the security of the protocol.
