Parallel Joint Channel Coding and Cryptography

Authors: Natasa Zivic, Christoph Ruland


Method of Parallel Joint Channel Coding and Cryptography has been analyzed and simulated in this paper. The method is an extension of Soft Input Decryption with feedback, which is used for improvement of channel decoding of secured messages. Parallel Joint Channel Coding and Cryptography results in improved coding gain of channel decoding, which achieves more than 2 dB. Such results are an implication of a combination of receiver components and their interoperability.

Keywords: Feedback, Block length, Coding gain, L-values, Parallel Joint Channel Coding and Cryptography, Soft Input Decryption
