In this information age, the need of secure picture transmission is critical. Medical data is hacked in the form of photographs, which costs more in terms of insurance claims. It is vital to safeguard photographs so that unauthorised individuals cannot view them. Chaos-based picture crypto systems are the most well-known of the several types of image crypto systems because their keys are invulnerable to assault or hacking. The chaotic features play a significant role in the development of keys for secure transmission and reception. The discrete wavelet transform (DWT) is a more basic transform that compresses the input image by combining approximation and detailed coefficients. The incorporation of the key in the approximate coefficients of the input image provides an efficient encryption when compared to other image crypto schemes. A two level image encryption is adopted in this work, where one level is achieved using the hybrid-chaotic sequences and the next level is utilizing the pseudo random noise sequence (PRNG) as the keys. A smaller value of variance value is achieved which shows the higher uniformity of pixel values in encrypted images of our proposed two level image cryptography. Also the better performance metrics in terms of entropy, NPCR, and UACI are achieved compared to a single level image encryption. The developed image crypto system is designed and simulated using MATLAB software package.
Keywords: two level chaos image cryptosystems, DWT, encryption, hybrid-chaotic maps, and PRNG key generation.
