DNA-based Image Security Algorithm Using Imperialist Competitive Algorithm

EasyChair Preprint no. 2874

12 pagesDate: March 5, 2020


Medical data should have been kept safe over an insecure network throughout the Internet against adversary attacks. This paper proposes a symmetric image encryption method using logistic map, Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) and Imperialist Competitive Algorithm (ICA). First, logistic map and DNA are used to create initial population of ICA through constructing specified number of encrypted images. Then, ICA optimizes encrypted images through iterative assimilation of selected images. However, a two-field decryption table has also been introduced for decryption process. The experimental results approve the high quality of the proposed encryption method by resisting variety of typical attacks.

Keyphrases: chaotic map, Deoxyribonucleic Acid, ICA, Image encryption
