Quantum key distribution (QKD) is characterized by the implementation of the principles of quantum mechanics in distributing the symmetric cryptographic key between two communicating stations. The quantum channel through which a light beam travels and then examined quantum-mechanically is governed by several quantum cryptographic protocols. This paper presents a simplified algorithm of the quantum authentication process (QAP) of the six-state deterministic quantum protocol (6DP). The proposed setup replaces the nonlinear crystal BBO which is responsible for the second harmonic generation process with a simple polarization splitting using Glan Thompson Polarizer (GTP).
