In cryptography, Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) is a highly secure transmission method used to send secret keys from sender to receiver. This paper discusses about the software implementation of the first two phases of QKD: (1) Raw Key Extraction and (2) Error Estimation. This paper also discusses about future work proposed to enhance these two phases. A TCP/IP based Client-Server concept has been used to implement the communication between two users in C++ language.
