Secret Communications Using Synchronized Sixth-Order Chuas's Circuits

In this paper, we use Generalized Hamiltonian systems approach to synchronize a modified sixth-order Chua's circuit, which generates hyperchaotic dynamics. Synchronization is obtained between the master and slave dynamics with the slave being given by an observer. We apply this approach to transmit private information (analog and binary), while the encoding remains potentially secure.

Keywords: Simulation, Observers, Secure Communication, Hyperchaos synchronization, sixth-order Chua's circuit
