Recently, with the rapid development of biomedical information, establishing secure communication and appropriate security services has become necessary to ensure a secure information exchange process. Therefore, to protect the privacy and confidentiality of personal data, in this study, we use a chaotic system, Lü system of the Lorenz-like system, to generate chaotic signals and apply them to encrypt the biomedical information. In addition, with one of the states of the chaotic system, we design a simple proportional-derivative (PD) controller to synchronize the master-slave chaotic systems for decrypting the biomedical information. Then, we encrypt the biomedical information, electrocardiography (ECG) and electromyography (EMG), measured about 30 s to 60 s to get tens of thousands of data from the subjects at the transmitting side (master) and send them to the receiving side (slave). After the receiving side receives the encrypted information, it decrypts them with the PD controller and then obtains the 1 mV to 2 mV biomedical signals. Thus, the security of the biomedical information can be ensured and realized.
