Businessinsider.com: Earlier today we posted how the Chinese military’s exploit of America’s grid software could conceivably provide them with a switch to turn out our lights, for months.

The resulting catastrophe can be averted, however, by the implementation of technology that recently  which uses single photons to secure networks and grids: Quantum Key Distribution (QKD).

The Los Alamos National Laboratory quietly reported successfully completing “the first-ever demonstration of securing control data for electric grids using quantum cryptography.”
