We consider modern methods of transmitting messages by means of modulating the intensity of the flux of visible light from LEDs. The structure of data transmission and existing standards are analyzed. The possibility of using technology to organize a channel of information leakage has been determined. Discusses methods for countering information leakage by modulating the intensity of the light output of LEDs.
