AP19675961– Development and research of keys distribution protocols based on quantum properties

Project goal: development and research of a quantum key distribution protocol for use in domestic information security systems.

Relevance of the project: Quantum key distribution protocols use the laws of quantum theory, which are dictated by nature, and not by number theory. The postulates of quantum theory state that before measurement, a particle, such as a photon, can exist in a continuum of states, taking on one specific value at the time of measurement. The impossibility of cloning an arbitrary quantum state and the inability to reliably distinguish between non-orthogonal quantum states make quantum cryptography resistant to eavesdropping on messages transmitted over quantum communication channels, since an attacker, having measured the state, will certainly introduce a disturbance into the system, which will be detected by the recipient.

Today, in the Republic of Kazakhstan there is no standard for an algorithm/protocol for quantum key distribution. In the Republic of Kazakhstan, to generate cryptographic keys for the RSA algorithm, the Diffie-Hellman protocol is used, based on the complexity of solving factorization and discrete logarithm problems, which are not resistant to quantum attacks.

In this regard, the development and research of new protocols for quantum key distribution is of particular relevance and demand.
