The National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT, President Dr. Hideo Miyahara) in cooperation with its commissioned research partners NEC, Mitsubishi Electric and NTT has started with the operation of the world’s fastest quantum key distribution (QKD) network using part of NICT’s open fiber testbed network JGN2plus. The Tokyo QKD Network boasts key generation rates at around 100kbps allowing perfectly secure one-time pad encryption of video data in real time. In this field network operation, Toshiba Research Europe Ltd and other European organizations have also participated in an effort to promote standardization of the interconnection technology between Japanese and overseas QKD systems.
