The present paper describes a proposed study, which considers the principles of remote generation and exchange of encryption keys between subscribers within a local network based on using a special architecture of the neural network – a tree parity machine (TPM). The main purpose of the research is to design a device and software for secure communication of users through the local network. It is assumed that the device is based on the principle of synchronization of two TPM, as a result of which a pair of users generates and exchanges a secret key for secure communication in the network. This approach does not involve complex calculations from the field of number theory, but instead works with basic arithmetic operations. Therefore, TPM synchronization can be used to build a secure communication protocol in the network. It was expected that the results of this study will provide a fundamentally different approach to the design of devices for generating and exchanging keys, because the proposed method complicates the of most attackers on the system, as it uses dynamic stochastic synchronization of two TPM programmed on microcontrollers. The volume of the report on the final qualifying work is – 52 pages, number of tables in the work – 0, illustrations – 18, the sources used – 14.
