A Shuffle Image-Encryption Algorithm

A. A. Yahya and A. M. Abdalla

Abstract

Problem statement: Image encryption needs to be secure by resisting statistical attacks and other types of attacks. Approach: The new algorithm, call it the Shuffle Encryption Algorithm (SEA), applies nonlinear s-box byte substitution. Then, it performed a shuffling operation partially dependent on the input data and uses the given key. Results: SEA was implemented and tested with different data, mainly consisting of images. Results confirmed its security, shown through statistical analysis using histograms, correlation and covariance. Conclusion: New algorithm was suited for encrypting images and other types of data.
