Paper Abstract

In this paper, we study an application of quantum key distribution (QKD) for indoor visible light communication (VLC) networks. Continuous variable QKD (CV-QKD) is used due to the fact that it is less expensive, working at room temperature, and much easier to implement. We design and analyze the security performance of the CV-QKD protocol based on sub-carrier intensity modulation (SIM) over indoor VLC systems taking into account the effects of VLC channel and other physical layer impairments. The mathematical expressions for quantum bit-error rate (QBER) and secret-key rate are derived. Based on the mathematical expressions, various systems’ metrics, including the modulation depth and the dual-threshold scale coefficient, can be determined so as to QBER and secret-key rate meet the design criteria.
