A novel encryption system to increase security in a three tier manner without any additional complexity is proposed in this paper. The encryption block here is a Shrinking generator which is a Linear Feedback Shift Register (LFSR) based stream cipher system in which controlled randomness provides security. The channel coding technique used is Turbo code that performs very well and provides results near Shannon's Limit. The design of interleaver used in turbo code provides security while channel coding. Puncturing pattern designed for channel coding further increases the security of the system and improves the code rate also. Security of the system is achieved by hiding the keys used in code generation and puncturing from unintended users.
