Physical layer security is effective in wireless communications because it makes a transmission secure from the beginning of protocols. We have proposed a chaos multiple-input multiple-output (C-MIMO) transmission scheme that achieves both physical layer security and channel coding gain using chaos signals. C-MIMO is a type of encryption modulation and it obtains the coding gain in conjunction with encryption without a decrease in the transmission efficiency. Thus, the error rate performance is improved in C-MIMO. However, decoding complexity increases exponentially with code length because of the use of maximum likelihood sequence estimation (MLSE), which restricts the code length of C-MIMO and thus the channel coding gain. Therefore, in this paper, we consider outer channel code concatenation instead of code length expansion for C-MIMO, and propose an iterative turbo decoding scheme for performance improvement by introducing a log-likelihood ratio (LLR) into C-MIMO and by utilizing turbo principle. The improved performances of the proposed scheme, compared to the conventional scheme when the outer channel codes are convolutional code and low-density parity check (LDPC) code, are shown by computer simulations.
