Open-Source LDPC Error Correction for QKD

Abstract : Error correction is an essential step in the classical post-processing of all quantum key distribution (QKD) protocols. We present error correction methods optimized for discrete variable (DV) QKD and make them freely available as an ongoing open-source project ( Our methods are based on irregular quasi-cyclic (QC) low density parity check (LDPC) codes and stateof-the-art rate adaption techniques [1].
