The primary goal of this paper is security management. This will provide authentication of users, and integrity, accuracy and safety of images which is traveling over internet. Moreover, an image-based data requires more effort during encryption and decryption. The Proposed Architecture for encryption and decryption of an image using suitable user-defined key is developed with the same objective. In this paper, the authors introduce a new permutation technique based on the combination of image permutation and a new developed encryption algorithm called "Hyper Image Encryption Algorithm (HIEA)".
