Analysis of effectiveness of measures for concealment of information in communication systems and networks by chaotic dynamics methods

Pavlo Yu. Kostenko, A. V. Antonov, T. P. Kostenko


The paper is devoted to analysis of information reticence in communication systems and networks when the reticence is achieved by the methods of chaotic dynamics. As distinct from traditional methods of information protection, which rely on “computational complexity” of cryptoanalysis, the advantage of the new method consists in ambiguity of inversion of the chaotic mapping. Characteristics of resistance of the method to some kinds of “krypto-invasions” are considered and defined.
