Abstract : Threats and attacks to information on the digital network environment are growing rapidly; this puts extra pressure on individuals and business, as they will have to protect their privacy and intellectual property, then. Therefore, cryptographic security protocols have been developed to maintain privacy between communicating parties and to reduce the risk of malicious attacks. However, most of the cryptographic algorithms which have been developed are based on mathematical models and possess some security defects. Therefore, most of these cryptographic protocols arenít secure enough against the main threats of modern networking technologies and computing systems. In this paper, the limitations of quantum cryptography are analyzed and a security framework model which is based on quantum entanglement is used to perform an efficient data encryption of short messages. Ultimately, the proposed method is demonstrated and validated by a series of experiments and analytical results.
