Title: An Overview of Quantum Teleportation for the Intelligence Community

Abstract

Quantum teleportation is a communication protocol for the exchange of information between remotely separated parties. We survey some prominent applications of quantum teleportation that show potential for collecting and analyzing intelligence. In addition to a background review of the underlying principles, we highlight the use of quantum teleportation in quantum key distribution, long-distance quantum communication networks, and quantum computing. The latter applications are significant for the Intelligence Community as they show promise for cracking conventional public-key encryption systems and providing alternate key distribution systems that are secure against attack.
