Embedding quantum key distribution into optical telecom communication systems
Paper in proceedings, 2019

Quantum key distribution (QKD) together with one-time pad cryptography provides unconditional security for the sensitive information. However, the lack of telecom compatibility hinders massive deployment of QKD. In this talk we will discuss the approaches of embedding QKD in optical communication systems and the recent progress.
