Received changes through RFC Editor sync (created alias RFC 9340, changed abstract to 'The vision of a quantum internet is to enhance existing Internet technology by enabling quantum communication between any two points on Earth.  To achieve this goal, a quantum network stack should be built from the ground up to account for the fundamentally new properties of quantum entanglement.  The first quantum entanglement networks have been realised, but there is no practical proposal for how to organise, utilise, and manage such networks.  In this document, we attempt to lay down the framework and introduce some basic architectural principles for a quantum internet.  This is intended for general guidance and general interest.  It is also intended to provide a foundation for discussion between physicists and network specialists.  This document is a product of the Quantum Internet Research Group (QIRG).', changed pages to 37, changed standardization level to Informational, changed state to RFC, added RFC published event at 2023-03-15, changed IRTF state to Published RFC)
