I am interested in Quantum Information and Cryptography in particular. I have gone through Nielsen's text and Preskill's notes. Can someone suggest to me some good text for Quantum Cryptography?
There aren't really many books on quantum cryptography.
The only one I am aware of is a book titled Applied Quantum Cryptography (C. Kollmitzer and M. Pivk, eds., Springer, 2010).
The Nielsen and Chuang book has a few pages dedicated to quantum cryptography in chapter 12.6.
However, I would recommend the following review papers on quantum cryptography as opposed to textbooks:
- Quantum Cryptography. N. Gisin et al., Rev. Mod. Phys. 74 no. 1, 145 (2002), arXiv:quant-ph/0101098.
- The security of practical quantum key distribution. V. Scarani et al., Rev. Mod. Phys. 81 no. 3, 1301 (2009), arXiv:0802.4155.
The first is the first review of the field, so it will provide a good introduction but is not up to date in terms of the latest developments. The second is a more extensive and mature review, but also more advanced.
