  Prof B Varcoe  Applications accepted all year round  Competition Funded PhD Project (Students Worldwide)

About the Project

One of the biggest likely threats to cryptography is the current rapid progress in quantum computing. One of the most likely candidates to meet this threat is quantum key distribution, however this potentially leads to an enormous cost in creating the necessary infrastructure. At the University of Leeds we have been developing an alternative approach that makes use of existing infrastructure of microwave links such as WiFi channels to perform key exchange. The aim of this project would be to establish an encrypted wireless network using these techniques.
