A Review of Analog Audio Scrambling Methods for Residual Intelligibility

A. Srinivasan, P.Arul Selvan


In this paper, a review of the techniques available in different categories of audio scrambling schemes is done with respect to Residual Intelligibility. According to Shannon's secure communication theory, for the residual intelligibility to be zero the scrambled signal must represent a white signal. Thus the scrambling scheme that has zero residual intelligibility is said to be highly secure. Many analog audio scrambling algorithms that aim to achieve lower levels of residual intelligibility are available. In this paper a review of all the existing analog audio scrambling algorithms proposed so far and their properties and limitations has been presented. The aim of this paper is to provide an insight for evaluating various analog audio scrambling schemes available up-to-date. The review shows that the algorithms have their strengths and weaknesses and there is no algorithm that satisfies all the factors to the maximum extent.
