Abstract
A technique for simultaneous encryption of a color and a gray-scale image is proposed, using single-channel double random-phase encoding in the fractional Fourier domain. Prior to the encryption, the segregated red, green, and blue components of the color image and the gray-scale image are encoded into a single image after changing their bit formats. The format of the encoded image is such that it cannot be perceived by the human eye. The fractional orders of the fractional Fourier transform and two random-phase masks act as key parameters for the encryption. Performance of the scheme is verified against chosen plain-text and known plain-text attacks, respectively. The effect of noise on the performance of the proposed technique is analyzed.
