Abstract
In any communication system, all data including encrypted data by the mathematical cipher are transmitted under the strict rule of the interface frame. Attacker can easily acquire the whole data the same as the data of legitimate users including the address, routing information and so on from the transmission line by tapping. This is very risky, especially for the secret sharing data center operations. So to hide the whole data in the transmission line is very attractive to ensure the high security level. This can be realized by Y-00 type random cipher that the ciphertext of simple mathematical cipher by PRNG is randomized by quantum noise and it gives a masking effect against the attacker's security analysis. This paper clarifies quantitative properties on the masking effect in the random cipher by Y-00 protocol, and shows the fact that a scheme by the intensity modulation may provide the greatest masking effect, even if the attacker employs the universal heterodyne receiver.
