Abstract

We present a protocol for an optical key distribution network based on computational correlation imaging, which can simultaneously realize privacy amplification and multiparty distribution. With current technology, the key distribution rate could reach hundreds of Mbit/s with suitable choice of parameters. The setup is simple and inexpensive, and may be employed in real networks where high-speed long-distance secure communication is required.
