We present a system based on phase conjugation in optical fibers for autocompensating highdimensional quantum cryptohraphy. Phase changes and coupling effects are auto-compensated by a single loop between Alice and Bob. Bob uses a source of coherent states and next Alice attenuate them up to a single photon level and thus 1-qudit states are generated for implementing a particular QKD protocol, for instance the BB84 one, together with decoy states to detect eavesdropping attacks.
