Abstract

In this paper, a secure optical chaos-based communication scheme is proposed. A semiconductor laser (SL) subjected to polarization-rotated optical feedback serves as the drive laser (DL), and two identical or near-identical SLs act as the transmitter laser (TL) and receiver laser (RL). The TL and the RL receive identical polarization-rotated optical injection from the DL. Two channels are used, and the TM mode of the DL, after being rotated by 90 ° , serves as the perturbation quantity. The communication performance is numerically studied. More importantly, the high fidelity and high degree of privacy of the proposed scheme are verified in detail, and the failure of two potential attacker scenarios is demonstrated, even if the attacker can get access to both channels simultaneously.
