A new chaotic communication scheme based on generalized chaotic synchronization (GCS) and hash function transpositions is presented. The communication scheme has nonsymmetric secrete keys and its ability is similar to traditional digital signatures, i.e. a receiver can convince himself whether or not the sender's message contents have been modified. As a direct application of the scheme, a GCS system is designed by using Chen's chaotic circuit and is studied in some detail. The numerical simulation shows that this Chen GCS system has high security and is fast and reliable for secure Internet communications.
