Long-Term Secure Distributed Storage Using Quantum Key Distribution Network With Third-Party Verification

The quantum key distribution (QKD) network with Vernam’s one-time pad encryption and secret sharing are powerful security tools to realize an information theoretically secure (ITS) distributed storage system. In the work of Fujiwara et al., a single-password-authenticated secret sharing (SPSS) scheme based on the QKD network and Shamirs secret sharing was experimentally demonstrated; it confirmed ITS […]
