The rapid advance of manufacturing Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs, aka drones) has led
to a rise in the use of their civilian and commercial applications. The access of these drones to controlled
airspace can be efficiently coordinated through particular layered network architecture, often referred to
as the Internet-of-Drones (IoD). The nature of IoD, which is deployed in an open-access environment,
brings significant safety and security concerns. Classical cryptosystems such as elliptic curve cryptography,
Rivest-Shamir-Adleman, and Diffie-Hellman are essential building blocks to secure communication in the
IoD. However, with the rapid development of quantum computing, it will be easy to break public-key
cryptosystems using efficient quantum algorithms like Shor’s algorithm. Thus, building quantum-safe
solutions to enhance IoD security has become imperative. Fortunately, quantum technologies can provide
unconditional security solutions to protect data and communications in the IoD environment. This paper
proposes a quantum-based scheme to prevent unauthorized drones from accessing a specific flight zone
and authenticates the identities and shared secret messages of involved entities. To do so, we used a quantum
channel to encode the private information based on a pre-shared key and a random key generated in a session.
The involved entities also perform mutual authentication and share a secret key. We also provide the security
proofs and analysis of the proposed scheme that indicates its resistance to well-known attacks.
