   The vision of a quantum internet is to fundamentally enhance 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 realisations of
   quantum networks are imminent, but there is no practical proposal for
   how to organise, utilise, and manage such networks.  In this memo, 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, but also to provide a
   foundation for discussion between physicists and network specialists.
