We present practical GHz-clocked QKD systems, next generation entanglement QKD technologies, and QKD platform to manage the secure keys and to support a variety of applications. We then show the intrinsic limit of QKD, i.e., a key rate bound, and discuss how to realize the provable (information theoretic) security with a larger secrecy capacity over longer distances. In particular, we present a basic theory of physical layer cryptography, which characterizes the secrecy capacity, and engineers the tradeoff between the efficiency of reliable transmission and secrecy of communication. We introduce a concept to unify these schemes in photonic network, referred to as quantum photonic network. Future issues for realizing this new network paradigm are discussed.
