An Enhanced Chaotic Image Encryption
The paper proposes a new image encryption scheme based on chaotic encryption. It provides a fast encryption algorithm based on coupled chaotic map. The image is encrypted using a pseudorandom key stream generator. The image is partially encrypted by selecting most important components of image. To obtain most important components of an image, discrete wavelet transform is applied. Chaos theory has been established since 1970s. The distinct properties of chaos, such as ergodicity, quasi-randomness, sensitivity dependence on initial conditions and system parameters, have granted chaotic dynamics as a promising alternative for the conventional cryptographic algorithms.
