We characterize the chaotic dynamics of semiconductor lasers subject to either optical or electrooptical feedback modeled by Lang-Kobayashi and Ikeda equations, respectively. This characterization is relevant for secure optical communications based on chaos encryption. In particular, for each system we compute as a function of tunable parameters the Lyapunov spectrum, Kaplan-Yorke dimension and Kolmogorov-Sinai entropy.
