IRTF is the research part of the IETF, producing Internet Drafts and Requests For Comments on topics that are still in the research phase. The Quantum Internet Research Group was proposed end of 2018 and officially approved in March 2020 to work on the emerging quantum communication technologies in the Internet context. There are currently two Internet Drafts that are working documents in QIRG:

    1. Architectural Principles for a Quantum Internet;
    2. Applications and Use Cases for the Quantum Internet.

During this session of the Network Theory Working Group at LINCS, I will describe the content of these two Internet Drafts. You will understand:

        1. What Quantum Internet is: a distributed system to make entangled pairs of qubits between end-points of the network;
        2. To what Quantum Internet is useful: to extend the distance of the currently available Quantum Key Distribution systems (quantum cryptography) and to allow futuristic quantum clouds (distributed quantum computing).

Knowing quantum mechanics by “popular science” only is enough to follow this session!
