IoT makes incorporated communication circumstances of interconnected devices and stages by drawing in both practical and substantial worlds simultaneously. The researchers of the study distinguished and examined the vital open difficulties in fortifying the security in IoT that combines encryption strategies to offer security to exchanged images between connected networks of the two parties. The device is primarily based on a hybrid algorithm that applies the strategies of encryption and optimization techniques are used. This proposed image safety model signcryption with elephant based optimization method used. The purpose of the use of optimization in encryption method is to pick the most advantageous keys in encryption algorithms, here Adaptive Elephant Herding Optimization (AEHO) used. This technique Signcryption is the technique that mixes the functionality of encryption and digital signature in a single logical step. From the implementation, the results are evaluated through the usage of the Peak Signal to Noise Ratio (PSNR) and Mean square errors (MSE).
