Title: Method and system for performing the transmission of private data over a public network

Abstract: A method and system for performing private transmission between some special network nodes of a public network. First, a network node serving as a transmitter sends a format packet incorporating user-defined check polynomial coefficients to another network node serving as a receiver. The receiver network node separates the coefficient information and loads it to a universal checker. While transmitting the private data, packets containing the private data have a check data generated by using the user-defined coefficients. Then the receiver network node can employ the universal checker to verify the reception of these packets containing the private data. When the private data transmission finishes, the transmitter network node sends a recovery packet to the receiver network node for ending the private data transmission.
