Lines of communication - Lines of communication are the routes used to communicate by people or groups who are in conflict; a government might open lines of communication with terrorists if it wished to negotiate with them.

Ways of distributing, if new, should still
Maintain the old communicative will.

It was needed to understand the implications of a communication that makes use of Quantum Mechanics resources with the purpose to answer a central question: “Are there any advantages in the quantum communication model when compared to the classical existing ones? ”.
Quantum Communication Complexity of Quantum Authentication Protocols
The theory of Quantum Communication Complexity has still open questions that need to be enlighten, such as about the existence or not of an exponencial gap between Classical and Quantum Communication Complexity for all functions.

The resulting quantum communication complexity is related with the numbers of communications required to produce the EPR pairs: Q∗ (fI ) = 2 · n.
Quantum Communication Complexity of Quantum Authentication Protocols
Once the evaluation of the quantum communication complexity of each quantum identity authentication protocol was performed, it is possible to draw some conclusions about them. A common characteristic of all of these protocols is that the number of communications performed is a polynomial in the size of the key.
Quantum Communication Complexity of Quantum Authentication Protocols
The resulting analysis helped in the identification of two protocols with equivalent quant um communication complexity and concluded that the Zeng and Zhang’s protocol may require the most communications between all of them.
