Conventional synchronization-based chaotic communication is vulnerable to synchronization attacks enable to recuperate system parameters. However, it is possible to make these attacks inefficient. The simple way to resist synchronization attacks is to change a parameter of the master system faster than the time needed for the system to synchronize. To verify this idea we construct a hybrid communication system composed of two chaotic Rössler oscillators and the chaotic logistic map. The latter is used for fast variation of the most sensitive system parameter when the Rössler oscillators synchronize. The algorithm is robust to noise in the communication channel.
