In this paper, the results of parallelizing an image encryption algorithm based on Game of Life and chaotic system are presented. The data dependence analysis of loops is applied in order to parallelize the algorithm. The parallelism of the algorithm is demonstrated in accordance with the OpenMP standard. As a result of this study, it is stated that the most time-consuming loops of the algorithm are suitable for parallelization. The efficiency measurements of the parallel algorithm working in standard modes of operation are shown.
