Recent advances in image encryption techniques are capable of protecting the digital images which are being communicated over various transmission media from leakage. Images related to medical or military applications, corporate video conference, etc. need reliable and secure transmission, which can be achieved by encryption. Here we propose an efficient optical image encryption technique using Radon Transforms and Chaotic phase mask.
