    We consider an enhanced measure of security for a quantum key distribution protocol, in which we require not only that the adversary obtains no information about the key but also remains unaware that a key generation protocol has been executed. When the adversary applies the same quantum channel independently to each transmitted quantum state, akin to a collective attack in the quantum key distribution literature, we propose a protocol that achieves covert and secret key expansion under mild restrictions. A crucial component of the protocol is a covert estimation stage, which is then combined with universal channel coding for reliability and resolvability in the covert regime.
