New Quantum Key Distribution platform based on the Coherent One Way Protocol

In this seminar, we will describe the recent development of a new Quantum Key Distribution platform which is based on the Coherent One Way protocol. We will describe the general features of this protocol and will discuss the practical challenges related to the development of a system. We will also approaches for the security certification of such a system and review current applications.
