Across grey widths of wild-faced sea,
The lordly anthems of the Pole,

In science:

In practice in this case, whoever receives a classical message, verifies all authentication codes added to it, and adds his/her own authentication code before forwarding it (see fig. 6).
Authentication and routing in simple Quantum Key Distribution networks
The more complex they are, the more layers of security they add to the authentication of the classical messages exchanged for routing and the phases of the QKD protocol.
Authentication and routing in simple Quantum Key Distribution networks
Figure 6: Authentication codes on a classical message exchanged between Alice and Bob when everybody shares an authentication key with everybody else.
Authentication and routing in simple Quantum Key Distribution networks
We have seen in the previous sections, that our networks require Alice at least to share an authentication key with the Carol she is connected to, and similarly for Bob.
Authentication and routing in simple Quantum Key Distribution networks
Using her authenticated classical channel with Carol, Alice can then ask her the list of Bobs available at any time.
Authentication and routing in simple Quantum Key Distribution networks
To start a QKD with a Bob present in Carol’s directory, Alice can adopt one of three general strategies, she can choose the one she prefers depending on the kind of communication she needs and the level of security of initial identification and authentication of the corresponding Bob.
Authentication and routing in simple Quantum Key Distribution networks
The first and simplest case is when Alice relies entirely on Carol, thus she just shares a secret key with Carol and trust her completely on identifying and authenticating Bob (see fig. 4).
Authentication and routing in simple Quantum Key Distribution networks
Thus with the first run of the QKD protocol, Alice and Bob create a shared secret key but they do not use this key to encrypt some data, but they keep it as their authentication key.
Authentication and routing in simple Quantum Key Distribution networks
When Alice and Bob run again a QKD protocol they share an authentication key and they can authenticate directly each other.
Authentication and routing in simple Quantum Key Distribution networks
The last approach to the initial distribution of authentication keys, is the one where Alice shares an authentication key with Bob, and in case with all other Carols, before starting any QKD.
Authentication and routing in simple Quantum Key Distribution networks
Of course this case requires much more work for Alice to enlarge her QKD network, since the initial authentication phase requires some kind of out-of-band communication.
Authentication and routing in simple Quantum Key Distribution networks
We assume that Carol-1 and Carol-2 already share an authentication key used to authenticated the messages they exchange for the routing. 5 In the Plug&Play scheme both the laser and detector are at Bob’s site; in any case still Alice and Bob boxes are different.
