We propose a novel approach of parameter identification using the adaptive synchronized observer by introducing an auxiliary subsystem, and some sufficient conditions are given to guarantee the convergence of synchronization and parameter identification. We also demonstrate the mean convergence of synchronization and parameters identification under the influence of noise. Furthermore, in order to suppress the influence of noise, we complement a filter in the output. Numerical simulations on Lorenz and Chen systems are presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
