Quantum key distribution (QKD) hallmarks a new generation of cryptographic primitives whose security is based on the validity of fundamental laws of physics. The goal of this project is to develop a photon-based multipartite QKD structure in a star like topology and to explore its fundamental quantum features both experimentally and theoretically. The realization of such multipartite QKD structures constitutes an essential step towards the realization of QKD networks for next generation quantum information processing.
