Much work to date has been done in the identification of physical layer optical network attacks. Our own work has indicated additional attacks against data integrity through various forms of optical coupling. In this paper, we present an analysis of coupling attacks on a fiber optic link. In addition we demonstrate on such form of a coupling attack using standard hardware and allowing injection of additional data onto the fiber. This method introduces minimal power losses that are well below most physical layer intrusion detection sensor thresholds.
