This is the first book on secure quantum network coding, which integrates quantum cryptography into quantum communication. It summarizes the main research findings on quantum network coding, while also systematically introducing readers to secure quantum network coding schemes. With regard to coding methods, coding models and coding security, the book subsequently provides a series of quantum network coding schemes based on the integration of quantum cryptography into quantum communication. Furthermore, it describes the general security analysis method for quantum cryptographic protocols. Accordingly, the book equips readers with effective tools for researching and applying quantum network coding.

About the authors
Tao Shang, Ph.D., Associate Professor, Beihang University, Beijing, China.
He was born in Yingkou, China, on August 11, 1976, received his Ph.D. degree from Kochi University of Technology, Japan, in 2006. From 2007 to 2009, he worked as a postdoctoral researcher in the School of Computer Science and Engineering at Beihang University, Beijing, China. His current research interests include quantum network coding, quantum cryptography, and network security. From 2009, he began to dedicate more efforts to the combination of network coding with cryptography. Attracted by the great charm of quantum communication, he attempted to combine quantum cryptography into quantum network coding. In recent five years, he has published more than 50 research papers in international conferences and journals, two books, and received two best paper awards, one second prize of Beijing Higher Education Teaching Achievement Award, two projects of National Natural Science Foundation of China, one project of National Key Research and Development Program of China.
