Application of Gray code to the cryptanalysis of chaotic cryptosystems

David Arroyo, Juana Nunez
Gray codes have found many applications in engineering and
mathematics. In this work we explain how to apply Gray codes to
the determination of the control parameter and initial point of a
chaotic orbit generated by the Mandelbrot map when the kneading
sequence is known. Possible applications to the cryptanalysis of a
certain type of cryptosystems based on Baptista's algorithm are
also discussed.
