We determine the secrecy capacities of arbitrarily varying quantum channels. Both secrecy capacity with average error probability and with maximal error probability are derived. The code we construct fulfills a stringent secrecy requirement, which is called the strong code concept.We determine when the secrecy capacity is a continuous function of the system parameters and completely characterize its discontinuity points both for average error criterion and for maximal error criterion. Furthermore, we prove the phenomenon "super-activation" for secrecy capacities of arbitrarily varying quantum channels, i.e., two quantum channels both with zero secrecy capacity, if used together, allow secure transmission with positive capacity.
