The word error rate of an ensemble of cryptographic systems is determined. The word error rate is specified as a function of the corresponding plain-text bit error rate. Degradation is defined and computed for the case of phase-shift keying and white Gaussian noise. Finally, the effect of differential encoding on a cryptographic system is investigated.
