Updating quantum cryptography and communications


Several topics on QKD techonology were discussed including CVQKD implementation, security analyses on various QKD protocols, and new key distillation algorithms. Tomita(Hokkaido Univ.) - Introduction to the wiretap coding, and recent advance in the B92 protocol : R.

Matsumoto(Tokyo Institute of Technology) - Dual universality of hash functions and its applications to quantum cryptography : T.

Courses offered concurrently at more than one level are listed with a split number (e.g., 234-334).

The number in parentheses following the title indicates the number of credits for that course.

The aim of this symposium is to discuss the latest research activities in these fields to stimulate the actual collaborations. Talks by NICT and UEC scientists, and by invited scientists in related fields. All participants (including non-researchers) gathered in a room and discussed the following topics: (1) Plans for the real service operations of the QKD network.

(2) Efficeint promotions of the QKD technologies to the industry.

In cases where specific course prerequisites are not stated, assumption of ability to perform at the appropriate level in that discipline is still made.

Date: March 7(Thu.), 2013 Venue: The seminar room, Building 3, NICT Headquarters Coordinator: Masahide Sasaki (NICT) Invited guest researchers: Sebastien Kunz-Jacques(Se Qure Net) Paul Jouguet(Se Qure Net) Summary: An informal seminar on QKD technology was held with 17 participants.A secure video conference between the network nodes was successfully demonstrated.The conference featured 40 talks and 75 posters, with topics related not only to QKD technologies but to a much wider variety of quantum information technologies, such as quantum repeater, quantum memory, quantum metrology and simulations.When a range of credits is offered, the specific number of credits within that range is determined either when the course is scheduled or, for variable-credit courses (identified as “VC”), when each student selects an individually approved number of credits.When there are numerals following the number of credits, it indicates a number of contact hours per week different from the number of credit hours.Any specific prerequisites or corequisites are stated at the end of the course description.
