One of the problems of modern information transmission systems is the introduction of new methods of protecting information transmitted over fiber-optic transmission lines. Currently, new methods of unauthorized access are emerging, which are being improved and developed every year. Within the framework of this work, studies of additional losses during bending of the optical fiber were carried out in order to create an automatic control system for additional losses that occur during mechanical action leading to its bending. For this purpose, practical experiments were conducted to measure losses in optical fiber with multiple bends and a computer program was created based on the data obtained. With the help of this program, it is possible to estimate additional losses in the optical fiber when the wavelength changes from 1310 to 1625 nm and the bending angle indicators from 45 to 135 degrees. The program also allows you to automatically approximate the values of additional losses occurring in the optical fiber with different variations of different bending angles and their number. The study of additional losses will allow in the future to develop an automatic control system based on changes in the indicators of additional losses and, when they change, issue a warning signal about possible unauthorized connection to a fiber-optic cable.
