The Quantum Information Modeling and Simulation Project focuses on advancing the science of security by using modeling and simulation to understand and study complex quantum information technologies such as quantum communications, cryptography, and sensing. M&S provides an effective (and efficient) way to study variations in the security and performance of design implementations, communication protocols, and architectures, as well as quantify the security of emerging cyber technologies.
Our existing research has yielded a specialized modeling framework to study vulnerabilities in Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) systems and particularly, to examine the impact of implementation non-idealities on system security and performance for several QKD protocols, operational architectures, design decisions, and advanced quantum attacks. The research directly supports the science of security in the research and development of identifiable and quantifiable security metrics for emerging cybersecurity technologies.
