How Fiber Optic Cable Can Be Easily Tapped

It is a common misconception that fiber optic cabling cannot be tapped. The reality is that it is not really even that hard to tap. Perhaps harder than traditional copper, but that is a pretty low bar, indeed. iTWire takes a quick look at techniques for tapping fiber for eavesdropping.

Also interested that this technology is free, but built into the line of product built by the company that developed this method to check for Fiber-Tapping.

That's nice, but you'll have to convince me that this is news. Fiber network taps have been around for almost as long as fiber. With fiber you can monitor the drop in signal. That's always been the real differentiator, the fact that you can tell you've been tapped.
