Submission + - Los Alamos has a functioning Quantum Internet (

clegrand writes: Scientists at Los Alamos National Labs have revealed that they have a solution for secure quantum internet communications. For 2 and a half years, they have been using a novel approach where the nodes on the network feed one-time pads via quantum laser links to the hub which provides for secure encryption over the classical network. They have dubbed it "network-centric quantum communications (NQC)". While this solution will become obsolete once someone successfully devises a true quantum router, it works NOW.
