Quantum key distribution (QKD) is a technique to secretly communicate a key string between two parties. For continuous variables, the security can be achieved using properties of quantum mechanics, notably the non-commutativity of variables. We investigate a prepare-and-measure continuous-variables QKD protocol based on single-mode squeezed displaced microwave states to communicate a Gaussian modulated key. We theoretically investigate the secrecy and secret key rate of the protocol with an eavesdropper. It is shown that depending on the additional noise induced by the eavesdropper, the protocol is proven to be secure at the cost of an increased signal-to-noise ratio. Additionally, we show preliminary experimental results of the protocol in the microwave regime.
