Sudoku grids are often cited as being useful in cryptography as a key for some encryption process. Historically transporting keys over an alternate channel has been very difficult. This article describes how a Sudoku grid key can be secretly transported using quantum key distribution methods whereby partial grid (or puzzle) can be received and the full key can be recreated by solving the puzzle.
