This project investigates the problem of quantum key distribution (i.e. the process by which two distant parties can arrive at a random string of bits that can be used for cryptographic purposes) based on d-level quantum systems. It investigates a variety of protocols based on such systems and shows that they provided increased security over that provided by 2-level systems. Protocols are also compared with respect to efficiency and ease of implementation, in addition to the level of security.
