A fully phase image encryption technique which uses double random phase encoding method is presented. The encryption method can be implemented optically. Robustness of the fully phase encryption and amplitude based encryption in the presence of noise is investigated. Using computer simulations, mean squared error for the decrypted images are obtained. The fully phase based encryption is shown to be robust with respect to the additive noise added to the encrypted image in terms of the mean squared metric. Based on the tests conducted in this paper, the fully phase based encryption method shows better performance than the amplitude based encryption in terms of mean square error metric.
