Chaotic map can be used for the image security. Arnold 2D cat map is a common and simple technique out of the different chaotic maps. This technique may be extended to three dimension. Thus, we have proposed a new framework for the image encryption using Arnold 3D cat map. Histogram analysis shows the effectiveness of Arnold 3D cat map as compared to 2D. Also, this framework better resists the differential attacks as compared to the Arnold 2D cat map.
