We report on very recent achievements in optical chaos communications. Electro-optic phase modulation principles have been used to design a new chaos generator based on nonlinear delay dynamics. A multiple delay (both short and long) architecture allowed for an enhanced chaotic complexity, as well as amore accurate synchronization capability, over the full bandwidth of a typical 10 Gb/s binary message. The setup is also flexible to allow for the definition of a hardware key defining the physical parameters ruling the dynamics.
