Abstract

A physical-enhanced secure passive optical network (PON) based on chaos synchronization is proposed and numerically demonstrated. In this scheme, the chaotic output of an external-cavity semiconductor laser is used as the transmission carrier in both downstream and upstream directions, the chaos modulation technology is used to encrypt the downstream data, and the multiplexed subcarrier-modulation technology is adopted for the upstream transmission. Simulation results demonstrate that both the downstream data and the upstream data encrypted into the chaotic carriers can be successfully decrypted; moreover, the security of downstream can be enhanced by properly increasing the bit rate, and the upstream security can be maintained at a high level. The proposed PON affords secure all-optical access at the physical layer.
