We present a new chaotic masking scheme by using synchronized chaotic systems. In this method, synchronization and message transmission phases are separated, and while synchronization is achieved in the synchronization phases, the message is only sent in message transmission phases. We show that if synchronization is achieved exponentially fast, then under certain conditions any message of any length could be transmitted and successfully recovered provided that the synchronization length is sufficiently long. We also show that the proposed scheme is robust with respect to noise and parameter mismatch under some mild conditions.
