A secret error-correcting coding (SECC) scheme is one that provides both data secrecy and data reliability in one process to combat with problems in an insecure and unreliable channel. In an SECC scheme, only the authorized user havingsecretly held information can correct channel errors systematically. Two SECC schemes are proposed in this paper. The first is a block encryption using Preparata based nonlinear codes; the second one is based on block chaining technique. Along with each schemes can be secure.
