Abstract

Considering that the layered cellular automata (LCA) are naturally fit for representing image data in various applications, a novel reverse iterative image encryption scheme based on LCA is proposed. Specifically, the plain image is set as the final configuration of an 8-layer CA, and some sequences derived from a random sequence are set as the pre-final configuration, which ensure that the same plain image will never be encrypted in the same way when encrypted many times. Then, this LCA is backward evolved by following some reversible two order rules, which are generated with the aid of a newly defined T-shaped neighborhood. The cipher image is obtained from the recovered initial configuration. Several analyses and experimental results show that the proposed scheme possesses a high security level and executive performance.
