What to Look For

Equipment and capabilities:

Electric, room-temperature single-photon sources
Gigahertz single-photon sources
Efficient sources of entangled photons
Gigahertz entangled-photon sources
Efficient room-temperature photon detectors
Gigahertz photon detectors
Quantum repeaters or relays
Gigahertz quantum repeaters
Multi-photon quantum cryptography


Gigabit-per-second point-to-point
Via satellite

On the Internet

Threat levels:

10-qubit quantum computer (practical quantum systems possible)
100-qubit quantum computer (large-scale within a decade)
1,000-qubit quantum computer (encryption codes compromised)
