All optical encryption decryption method using frequency encoding is proposed based on semiconductor optical amplifiers. The plain text and key are encoded in frequency encoding format i.e. the states of information ‘0’ and ‘1’ are represented by two different frequencies in the c-band. The ultra fast speed of operation of the devices used for the implementation of this system makes it very attractive for future all optical secure communication network. A simple method of conversion of frequency encoded data stream and intensity encoded data stream is also described, which enables us to use same technology of production and detection of intensity encoded data signals until new techniques based on frequency encoding comes out.
