Specific to security issues concerning identity authentication of mobile applications, a quantum identity authentication protocol based on optical transmission and face recognition is put forward in this paper with consideration of the unconditional security characteristic of quantum key. As for this protocol, optical transmission technology is adopted to acquire quantum key and identity authentication encrypted by quantum key can thus be realized, for which key feature points of face image and user password serve as dual authentication factors. Experimental result and security analysis indicate that this protocol can resist illegal attack and ensure security of identity authentication of mobile applications, which also has great operating efficiency.
