dc.description.abstractQuantum physics has a major influence on modern computer science and communications. New quantum-based solutions continue to be proposed by researchers. However, only a few techniques are possible to implement in practice. One of them is quantum key distribution, which ensures the confidentiality of digital data. This article introduces a new concept: quantum distribution of pre-shared keys. This approach provides end-users with very secure authentication, impossible to achieve using currently-available techniques. Secure authentication is a key requirement in virtual private networks (VPN)—popular protection in computer networks. The authors simulated quantum-based distribution of a shared secret in a typical VPN connection. Using a dedicated simulator, all individual steps of the quantum key distribution process were presented. Based on the created secret, a secure IPsec tunnel in a StrongSwan environment was established between AGH (Poland) and VSB (Czech Republic). It allows end-users to communicate at very high security levels.cs
