Quantum cryptography is a way to deal with cryptography dependent on the laws of quantum mechanics. Cryptography depends on key sharing which plays a vital role. For providing a provable security during key distribution, quantum cryptography is used. There are many secure protocols and algorithms were proposed already in quantum cryptography. The Quantum Key Distribution faces several security issues, one among them, is Eavesdropper during the communication. It is an important issue which leads to thrashing of security by Man-in-the-middle (MITM) attack. In this paper, to detect eavesdropping and to enhance security during encryption, a Modified RSA method for encryption is proposed. The BB84 protocol for private key generation and distribution through quantum channel is used. Therefore, the proposed technique provides secure quantum key generation and distribution by which it prevents Eavesdropping security threat.
