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?


1 Answer 1


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:

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.
