The world is witnessing an ever-growing demand
for communications services. This is being supported by a
fast increase in transmission and switching capacity in networks.
Two of the major issues in these networks are privacy and
security. These two issues have been covered, up to now, by
using public key cryptosystems. These systems can use a rather
short secret parameter, known as the key, or they can encipher
directly the message.
The continuous increase of computer speed threatens the safety
of these procedures. An alternative simple way to improve
the security of an encrypted message can be realised by additionally
encoding at the physical layer using chaotic carriers generated
by components operating in the non-linear regime. This will
be the goal of this project.
This project is being carried out by different universities
and companies of various european countries.
