An Efficient Image Encryption Scheme Based on ZUC Stream Cipher and Chaotic Logistic Map
Digital color image encryption is different from text encryption because of some inherent features of image such as huge data capacity and high correlation among the neighboring pixels. Because of the desirable cryptographic properties of the chaotic maps such as sensitivity to initial conditions and random-like behave, more and more researches use these properties for encryption. This paper proposed an efficient image encryption scheme. Logistic chaos-based stream cipher is utilized to permute the color image. The MD5 hash function and the ZUC stream cipher algorithm are combined to diffusion the color image. Theoretical and experimental analyses both confirm the security and the validity of the proposed algorithm.
