Abstract

This thesis considers the use of quantum mechanics for information security related tasks. Two secure quantum bit commitment protocols are introduced and the security of the protocols against attackers is discussed. The use of quantum entanglement breaking channels for making a protocol secure is considered and some security bounds are given. Entanglement measurement in multipartite systems and a universal entanglement measure are also introduced and discussed.
