Secure Communication in Fiber-Optic Networks

Ben Wu, Bhavin J. Shastri and Paul R. Prucnal,    Princeton University, Princeton, NJ, USA

Providing data security in the optical layer enables low latency data encryption and enlarges the capacity for secure data transmission. As the demand for both secure and high speed transmission grows dramatically, secure data transmission is pushing the requirements for processing speed and network capacity. As fiber-optic systems form the backbone of communication networks, optical approaches for protecting the network security increases the available capacity of the network. Moreover, compared to electric circuits, fiber-optic systems are immune to electromagnetic interference and have high processing ...
