Key combination and confidential key supply for quantum key distribution networks
|Publication Date:||1 October 2020|
This Recommendation describes key combination methods for quantum key distribution network (QKDN) and specifies security requirements for both the key combination and the key supply from QKDN to cryptographic applications.
In particular, this Recommendation addresses the following points:
- the security of the combination of keys exchanged through a QKDN and keys exchanged through other key exchange methods;
- the security of the key supply from a QKDN to cryptographic applications.
