Kak's three stage protocol is a little known protocol for quantum cryptography that was suggested by Subhash Kak who has named the scheme after himself. Although it is also open to the man-in-the-middle attacks like the BB type of quantum cryptography protocols, it uses only quantum transformations which makes it quite different from other systems.

Practical issues related to its implementation will determine whether it will ever be widely used.
