We introduce a new integral method for Quantum Key Distribution to perform sifting, reconciliation and amplification processes to establish a cryptographic key through the use of binary matrices called frames which are capable to increase quadratically the secret key rate. Since the eavesdropper has no control on Bob’s double matching detection events, our protocol is not vulnerable to the Intercept and Resend (IR) attack nor the Photon Number Splitting (PNS) attack. The method can be implemented with the usual optical Bennett–Brassard ( B B 84 ) equipment allowing strong pulses in the quantum regime. View Full-Text
