Zhenzhou GUO and Xintong LI, Shenyang Aerospace University, China


In order to increase the chaotic performance of the chaotic system, the chaotic system A-S proposed by Sprott is improved by adding a cosine excitation function to a controller. A series of new chaotic systems are obtained, and the chaotic performance of the improved system is verified. The image is encrypted by the chaotic sequence generated by the improved A chaotic system. In the scrambling part of the image encryption algorithm, the zigzag transformation is improved, and different directions are selected to start the traversal, so that the scrambling process is not easy to be restored. The diffusion part draws on the traditional IDEA algorithm to perform diffusion operations on the image. Finally, the encryption algorithm is analyzed and tested, and the results show that the algorithm has fast encryption and decryption speed, sufficient key space, and can resist statistical analysis attacks well. The algorithm can provide better guarantee for the security of images.
