An Adaptive Secure Channel Coding Scheme for Data Transmission over LEO Satellite Channels


Department of Electrical Engineering,University of Tehran


Both secure and error control coding are very extensive subjects, each with a variety of sub-disciplines. A secure channel coding (joint encryption-channel coding) scheme provides both data secrecy and data reliability in one process to combat problems in an insecure and unreliable channel. In this paper, a joint encryption-channel coding scheme is developed, based on concatenated turbo codes for more efficient and secure transmission of LEO satellite data. Reliability and security are achieved by adapting the pseudo-random puncturing strategy with a change of distance between satellites and ground stations in the communication s'{e}ance, an issue further burdened by reducing energy consumption or increasing bit rate of data transmission. Simulation results show the relevance and superior performance of the proposed scheme compared with the traditional data transmission system.
