Progress in experimental quantum digital signatures

Abstract

There is ongoing research into information-theoretically secure digital signature schemes. Mathematically based approaches typically require additional resources such as anonymous broadcast and/or a trusted authority to achieve information-theoretical security. The principles of quantum mechanics can be applied to the problem to create the approach known as quantum digital signatures, which does not have these limitations. This presentation will provide an overview of the development of experimental quantum digital signatures. The evolution of experimental test-beds will be charted from small scale demonstrators to long distance implementations with commercial prototypes, along with overviews of the theoretical background of each stage.
