A system of a particle kicked by a Gaussian beam is studied. A description of the chaotic behavior of this system is presented. The suitability of the model for cryptography is demonstrated by applying the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen correlations and calculating the entanglement parameter. Based on this model, we introduce a quantum secure communication protocol. By using the Shannon information theory about the detailed analysis of the Gaussian cloner attack strategy about this system, we demonstrate that the system is both safe and reliable. The results show that the proposed algorithm improves the problem of failure of encryption, such as small key space and level of security.
