MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents a new combined neural network and chaos based pseudorandom sequence generator and a DNA-rules based chaotic encryption algorithm for secure transmission and storage of images. The proposed scheme uses a new heterogeneous chaotic neural network generator controlling the operations of the encryption algorithm: pixel position permutation, DNA-based bit substitution and a new proposed DNA-based bit permutation method. The randomness of the generated chaotic sequence is improved by dynamically updating the control parameters as well as the number of iterations of the chaotic functions in the neural network. Several tests including auto correlation, 0/1 balance and NIST tests are performed to show high degree of randomness of the proposed chaotic generator. Experimental results such as pixel correlation coefficients, entropy, NPCR and UACI etc. as well as security analyses are given to demonstrate the security and efficiency of the proposed chaos based genetic encryption method.
