dc.description.abstractIn this thesis, we begin by both expounding and improving the theory of finite key analysis. Our improvement of the analysis in turn improves the amount of key that can be generated for protocols without nice symmetries. Following this improvement, we present a numerical method for the finite key analysis of QKD protocols that can be represented in fi nite-dimensional Hilbert spaces without requiring specif c symmetries. Lastly, we present the nite key analysis for variations of the BB84 protocol [7] for both better understanding of the finite key analysis and proof of the general applicability of our numerical method.en

uws.comment.hiddenI accidentally submitted the thesis prior to my advisor sent the confirmation to science.dissertations. This is the version he approved (which has a few more corrections than the previous submission). Sorry for the trouble.en
