Original Paper


Based on the high-dimension Lorenz chaotic system and perceptron model within a neural network, a chaotic image encryption system with a perceptron model is proposed. This paper describes the algorithm flow in detail, and analyses the cryptographic security. The experimental results show that this algorithm has high security, and strong resistance to the existing attack methods.
