Most researches in the field of covert channel concerned a specific channel, and few works resolved the general situations. This paper focuses on the system that can be modeled as a finite state machine, introduces an approachto modify the machine. Researcher can use the modified finite state machine to set up a noiseless covert channel in the system, calculate the covert channel's information leakage, and get the necessary and sufficient condition for the system to be secure. To show the approach's availability, this paper gives an example to show the whole process.
