Hybrid Image Encryption Technique to Improve the Security Level by using (n, k, p) Gray Code and XOR Operation


Objectives: To enhance the performance of decomposition encryption methods, a modified image encryption technique is utilized in (n, k, p) Gray coding exhibit the application of (n, k, p) Gray coding in the encryption of images. Methods/ Statistical Analysis: We proposed a revised algorithm based on image encryption that improves the level of security for available (n, k, p) based bit plane decomposition encryption technique. The proposed hybrid methods starts with bit-plane decomposition of (n, k, p) Gray coding then shuffling each bit plane using random scrambling finally pixel substitution based on X-OR Operation. Findings: The experimental results and comparison demonstrates that proposed encryption algorithm have best performance in image encryption. Applications/Improvements: This algorithm could be utilized for securing protection in biological traits, imaging systems in medical field and digital video surveillance system. Our next plan will additionally enhance and examine the execution of (n, k, p)-Gray coding for data hiding and picture de-noising.
