Abstract: This paper proposes the novel joint coding suitable for dependable and secure systems. The proposed joint coding has three functions: data compression, public-key encryption and error control coding. This coding provides very low encoding complexity due to realising only by simple matrix computation, which gives an efficient transmission of data in networks and a high speed execution in computers. In an encoding process, input data is firstly converted to a sparse sequence, which is then encoded using the encoding matrix generated by linear block codes and randomly constructed non-singular matrices. Decoding is performed based on error correction algorithm of the linear block codes. Evaluation shows that the encoder gate count of the proposed joint coding for still images is smaller than that of the conventional separate coding by 65.7%.

Keywords: error control coding; data compression; joint coding; public-key cryptosystems; PKC; cryptographic channel coding; dependable systems; cryptography; security.
