Quantum cryptography involves the use of quantum mechanics and/or computing to perform cartographic task. For instance, quantum key distribution can be used to solve key exchange problems.
While quantum cryptography can be used in many different ways, the most common example is quantum key distribution. Quantum key distribution can best be described as the process of using quantum communication to create a shared key between two parties, without the use of a third party learning anything about the respective key. Once the key is created, it is encrypted for use in communication between the appropriate parties.
One of the reasons why quantum key distribution is such a strong and secure method of communication is because it doesn't rely on mathematical complexity, which is in stark contrast to post-quantum cryptography.
According to the Global Quantum Cryptography Market 2017-2021 report by Reportstack, the global quantum cryptography market is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of approximately 33.22% through the forecast period. Featuring 70 pages complete with statistics, tables, facts and figures, this comprehensive report covers the market from all angles. As explained in the report, quantum cryptography is defined as the process or processes for manipulating properties associated with quantum mechanics for the purpose of cryptographic tasks. In essence, it's a way to secure communications while making it significantly less likely to be hacked or otherwise accessed by an unauthorized user. Quantum cryptography combines elements of quantum mechanics with coding to achieve this goal.
