It aims at the creation of a secret key between authorized partners connected by a quantum channel and a classical authenticated channel. The security of the key can in principle be guaranteed without putting any restriction on an eavesdropper's power. This article provides a concise up-to-date review of QKD, biased toward the practical side. Essential theoretical tools that have been developed to assess the security of the main experimental platforms are presented (discrete-variable, continuous-variable, and distributed-phase- reference protocols). © 2009 The American Physical Society.||Source Title:||Reviews of Modern Physics||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/98316||ISSN:||00346861||DOI:||10.1103/RevModPhys.81.1301|
