With the rapid development of the technology of big data mining and cloud computing. People can easily get images and videos from Internet by mobiles or iPads. How to protect the copyrights of the ownership of these media is a very important problem in information security, especially in the instant communication. In order to improve the security of the transfer processing of images and videos, an improved method of image and video encryption based on Arnold transformation is proposed in this paper. An image is split randomly into several regions to increase the security, each region is then encrypted by Arnold transformation. A security instant communication software is also suggested in this paper. The advantages of our methods include that the periodic recovery of encrypted image is removed and the calculation speed is faster than the traditional Arnold transformation. The methods and the software proposed in this paper are hopefully applied in mobiles or ipads to protect the instant communication of images and videos.
