Cryptanalysis of an Image Encryption Algorithm Based on DNA Sequence Operation and Hyper-chaotic System

3DR Express

Abstract

Recently, chaotic image cipher using DNA sequence operation has been studied extensively. However, corresponding cryptanalysis is lacking, which impedes its further development. This paper cryptanalyzes a newly proposed chaotic image cipher based on DNA sequence operation. In this paper, we firstly analyze the security defects of the proposal. Then by applying chosen-plaintext attack, we show that all the secret parameters can be revealed. The effectiveness of the proposed chosen-plaintext attack is supported both by rigorous theoretical analysis and experimental results.
