Title: Nuclear Command and Control using Quantum Key Distribution for Encrypted Communication
Biography: Derek Hall
Quantum key distribution (QKD) has the potential to provide nearly impregnable secure transmissions, increased bandwidth, and additional redundancy for nuclear command and control communication (NC3). While QKD is still in its adolescence, the manner in which QKD should be used for NC3 must be charted out before it can be engineered, tested, and implemented for operations. This presentation will describe how QKD works, its pros and cons, and theorize how best a QKD system would be implemented.
