Summary: 
Quantum cryptography reaches a decisive phase to innovate secure communications technology beyond a subject reserved for scientists. Every core technology of quantum cryptography should be unified with photonic network technology and contemporary cryptography to realize secure photonic network. As another important avenue, new quantum crypto-schemes taking every merit of known schemes and quantum node technology for fully quantum networking must be pursued for new generation quantum cryptography.
