Security in transmission storage of digital images has its importance in today's image communications and confidential video conferencing. Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is a well known block cipher that has several advantages in data encryption. However, it is not suitable for real-time applications. In this paper, the authors present a modification to the Advanced Encryption Standard (MAES) to reflect a high level security and better image encryption. The modification is done by adjusting the Shift Row phase. Experimental results verify and prove that the proposed modification to image cryptosystem is highly secure from the cryptographic viewpoint.
