A software for analysis of quantum eavesdropping strategies was developed. It can analyze intercept/resend and beam splitter attacks, considering practical questions as fiber length, attenuations, quantum efficiency and dark counts among others. It can also perform Monte Carlo simulation of the attacks, as well as error correction, privacy amplification and encryption-decryption of pictures for a better visualization of the process.
