Based on the better properties of chaotic maps, the studies of chaotic-based image encryption have received much attentions by researchers in recent years. In this paper, an image encryption algorithm based on logistic map with substitution approach is proposed. Meanwhile, we make the line chart, histogram, and pixel loss analysis to show the performance of our algorithm.
