Quantum key distribution networks – Functional architecture
|Publication Date:||1 December 2020|
This Recommendation specifies the functional architecture of quantum key distribution (QKD) networks.
In particular, the scope of this Recommendation includes:
- Functional architecture model;
- Functional elements and reference points;
- Architectural configurations;
- Basic operational procedures.
NOTE - This Recommendation addresses a functional architecture of QKD networks (QKDNs) based on the conceptual structure illustrated in [ITU-T Y.3800] and the functional requirements in [ITU-T Y.3801].
