A Data Security Scheme for the Secure Transmission of Images
The transfer of image is happening over the unsecured network needs good security mechanisms to keep the image away from the unauthorized access. This paper is suggesting a new approach for providing security of images using Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) and DNA encoding. The RGB image is encoded using DNA encoding followed by DNA addition to increase the randomness. After that a hybrid encryption is performed based on Elliptic Curve Cryptography and Hill Cipher. This will increase the security of the image and thus prevent attacks from hackers.
