Abstract

Through the use of optical fibers, we attempted to demonstrate a particular type of wiretap channel. Wiretap channels utilizing optical fibers are discussed with a focus on the distance between users in order to improve channel secrecy. To achieve this goal, we determine a measurement for the distance between the legitimate receiver, sender, and eavesdropper to ensure security by using wiretap channel error probability and link length attenuation in the wiretap channel's capacity equation. Moreover, we investigate the different types of optical receivers, the Positive-Intrinsic Negative (PIN) and the Avalanche Photo Diodes (APD), comparing their ratios over different load resistances and considering resistance as a key parameter for both sides to improve or decrease secrecy. The relationship between load resistance of legitimate receiver and eavesdropper was also driven using separate optical receivers for legitimate receiver and eavesdropper following the PIN and ADP optical receivers.
