Germany has launched a research initiative to lay the foundations for a national quantum network for secure communication. The network will use satellite-based quantum communications to securely distribute quantum encryption keys over long distances. Quantum cryptography is a method of secure communication that exploits the fundamental laws of quantum physics. If someone tries to read the data being transmitted, its quantum state changes, making it theoretically impossible to copy the ...
