Title: Information Leakage from Optical Emanations PDF

Creator: Loughry, Joe

Description: In this technical paper published in August 2002, researchers show that optical emanations from telecommunications devices can be monitored remotely. Light emitting diodes, often used as indicators in modems and other data transfer equipment, flash in distinct patterns that could compromise otherwise secure data transmission. Despite being easy to exploit, the authors point out that this vulnerability would generally be simple to fix.
