Medical images are very sensitive data that are being transferred here and there either for referral cases or consultation. Since these images are very sensitive, they have to be kept securely. Since the advent of the internet, transferring of these images is being done on the network in the form of data. Data security applications have drawn lots of interest over time. Unauthorized users daily derive ways to gain access to sensitive information while application programmers continue to devise new methods of keeping information safe. One of the best ways to which data could be kept secured is through the use of cryptography. Not just Cryptography, there are new applications of the principles of quantum mechanics to cryptography has led to a remarkable new dimension in secured communication. As a result of these new developments, it is now possible to construct cryptographic communication systems which keep transferred data safe and secure. Therefore, in this paper, a reliable and dependable way of securing medical image using Darpa Quantum Network that delivers end to end network security via high-speed Quantum Key Distribution, and testing the Network against sophisticated eavesdropping attacks is being proposed.
