The paper describes the methodology of identifying an interference in the optical fiber. The paper presents the technology widely known as quantum key distribution. The quantum key distribution is based on the technique of constant comparison of quantum characteristics of the input light source and its characteristics at the end of the fiber optic. Methodology of presented work includes the evaluation of the functional objectives through the constructive assumptions for the laboratory models development. This paper presents the model of a system based on the comparison of polarization states of light quanta using two asymmetric Mach-Zender interferometers as transmitting and receiving systems to enable compensation of polarization state changes at the input and output of the fiber optics sensing cable. Continuous monitoring of the state of the reference signal, the specific changes of natural or ambient effects on the fiber will attempt to identify interference in the optical waveguide as a change of the polarization of the quantum states of the light. The authors indicate the possibility of using such fiber optic sensor as a security sensor to protect the extensive critical infrastructure facilities. In this article the future research conception of using compressed sensing algorithms for data compression in quantum key distribution systems is presented.
