About this book
This book also addresses challenges posed by quantum technology such as network organization, passive and active eavesdropping, and future trends in QKD such as Software Defined Networking (SDN) with QKD and application QKD in 5G networks. It is conceived through eight chapters by treating the following thematic units separately: Fundamentals of Quantum Key Distribution, QoS architecture/mode, QoS MAC layer, QoS signaling techniques for key management and session negotiation purpose and QoS routing protocols that minimize the consumption of key material through the equitable utilization of network resources when finding an optimal path.
Through numerous information on practical solutions, simulation examples, illustrations, and analysis, readers can easily distinguish the specificity of quantum technology and understand the challenges and methods of practical implementation of quantum cryptography in common telecommunications standards. Researchers working in quantum technology and applied networking security as well as advanced-level students studying computer science and electrical engineering will benefit from this book. Professionals working within these related fields will also benefit from this book.

About the authors
Dr. Stefan Rass is a full professor for Security at the LIT Secure and Correct Systems Lab at the Johannes Kepler University Linz, and an associate professor at the University of Klagenfurt, Austria. He has a double master degree in Computer Science and Technical Mathematics, and a Dr. in mathematics (with a focus on security). His research interests include general system security, in particular, applications of quantum cryptography and information-theoretic security. He authored numerous papers on applied quantum cryptography, the complexity of network design and network provisioning towards quality-of-security, as well as the book “Cryptography for Security and Privacy in Cloud Computing”, published by Artech House in 2013. Recent research focuses on security based on game and decision theory, which originated from the security analysis of quantum networks. This theory has been published in the “Game Theory for Security and Risk Management: From Theory to Practice”, published by Springer Birkhäuser, DOI: 10.1007/978-3-319-75268-6.
Dr. Peppino Fazio received a graduate degree in Computer Science in May 2004 and a PhD in Electronics and Telecommunications Engineering in January 2008, both from the University of Calabria, Cosenza, Italy. From June 2004, he was at the Telecommunications Group, University of Calabria. From May 2008 to September 2008, he was a Visiting Researcher with the UPV of Valencia (Spain), GRC Research Group. Today he is an Assistant Professor at the Ca’ Foscari University (DSMN) and senior researcher at the VSB-TUO in Czechia. He has authored and co-authored more than 115 papers for international journals and conference proceedings. His research interests include IP QoS architectures, adaptive wireless networks, mobile ad hoc networks, quantum key distribution networks, and vehicular ad hoc networks. He has been a member of various startup companies and is recipient of international awards (e.g. the Intel Business Challenge Award in 2013).
Dr. Miroslav Voznak received the PhD. degree in telecommunications from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science, VSB - Technical University of Ostrava, Czechia, and completed his habilitation in 2002 and 2009, respectively. He was appointed Professor of Electronics and Communication technologies in 2017. He is author and co-author more than 300 results indexed in WoS and over the hundred industrial outcomes incl. patents, utility models or certified metodologies. Since 2013, he has been leading the Dept. of Telecommunications and since 2017, also big data analysis lab, both in VSB-Technical University of Ostrava. His research interests include wireless networks, network security, quality of service and knowledge datamining in networks. According to the Stanford University study released in 2021, he is one of the World’s Top 2% scientists in Networking and Telecommunications.
