Abstract
Most of the reported optical techniques of encryption in literature belong to the category of symmetric cryptosystems, in which the keys used for encryption are identical to the decryption keys. In an environment of network security, a symmetric cryptosystem would suffer from problems in key distribution, management, and delivery. In this paper, we present the results of an asymmetric cryptosystem that uses fractional Fourier transform domain amplitude- and phase- truncation approach. The input image/data used are gray-scale and color patterns. The conventional random phase masks are replaced with structured phase masks to further enhance the key size and hence security of cryptosystem. The scheme also uses the concept of interference and polarization selective diffractive optical element. Cryptanalysis has been carried out considering various types of attacks using phase retrieval algorithm. Numerical simulation results have been presented.
