Abstract

It is possible to encrypt a message (a text composed by some alphabet) using the ergodic property of the simple low-dimensional and chaotic logistic equation. The basic idea is to encrypt each character of the message as the integer number of iterations performed in the logistic equation, in order to transfer the trajectory from an initial condition towards an epsilon-interval inside the logistic chaotic attractor.
