Description Invited talk. Quantum cryptography, as an area of science and technology, should be seen both as an attempt to develop a new, and more adequate, theory of broadly understood cryptography, and new cryptographic tools and technologies and also as a new way to get a deeper insight into the physical world, into its basic concepts, models, laws and limitations. Quantum cryptography, in a broad sense, should be seen as an area of science that brings also new paradigms, goals, value systems, concepts, methods and tools to exploit (quantum) physical world. Development of security providing technology has been the original goal of quantum cryptography, but its implications and contributions for the study of the physical and especially quantum world are far reaching. The goal of the talk is first to take a broader view of classical and quantum cryptography and then to discuss impacts of quantum cryptography to quantum physics (understanding). The talk will present main developments in the process Classical Cryptography ---- Quantum Cryptography - Quantum Physics.
