A class of chaotic map called piecewise-quadratic-equation map to design feedback stream cipher is proposed. Such map can generate chaotic signals that have uniform distribution function, δ-like autocorrelation function. Compared with the piecewise-linear map, this map provides enhanced security in that they can maintain the original perfect statistical properties, as well as overcome the defect of piecewise-linearity and expand the key space. This paper presents a scheme to improve the local complexity of the chaotic stream cipher based on the piecewise-quadratic-equationmap. Both the theoretic analysis and the results of simulation show that this scheme improves the microstructure of the phasespace graph on condition that the good properties of the original scheme are remained.
