On the Discretized Gaussian Modulation (DGM)- Based Continuous Variable-QKD

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

To overcome the low reconciliation efficiency problem of Gaussian modulation (GM)-based-continuous variable (CV)-quantum key distribution (QKD), in this paper, we propose to use discretized GM (DGM)-based-CV-QKD. The proposed CV-QKD scheme has complexity and reconciliation efficiency similar to that of discrete modulation (DM)-based-CV-QKD and at the same time solves for the problem of the nonexistence of strict security proofs for the DM-CV-QKD under the collective attacks. We demonstrate that the 32-points-based DGM CV-QKD can closely approach the theoretical SKR-limit in medium and high channel losses regimes. On the other hand, the 64-points-based DGM CV-QKD scheme closely approaches the SKR-limit for all channel losses.
