Perfectly Secure Quantum Internet Running At Los Alamos For Two Years

jpwilliams (2430348) writes "A network leveraging quantum mechanics has been under testing for two years at Los Alamos National Labs.

Because observing a message inevitably changes it, messages based on quantum mechanics are theoretically perfectly secure.

The Los Alamos network works off of a hub and spoke model, where all messages go into a central hub and then out to another end point in the network.

Apparently, some companies are already providing quantum networking, with banks and other security firms interested."
