#### 2.2. Sensitivity Analysis of the Initial Values and Control Parameters in CDCS

**Step 1:**- Get 6 different CDCS by setting $k=2,3,4,5,6,7$, respectively. Then, we obtain 6 chaotic sequences with the initial value ${x}_{0}=0.65382364$ by Equations (3) and (4), respectively. If the output $|{y}_{i}|$ is larger than 1, then we let ${y}_{i}=\frac{\sqrt{k-1}-{y}_{i}}{\sqrt{k-1}}$ in Equation (3) and ${y}_{i}=\frac{\sqrt{k-1}-1+{y}_{i}}{\sqrt{k-1}-1}$ in Equation (4), and if the output ${y}_{i}<0$, then ${y}_{i}=\left|{y}_{i}\right|$. Next, we turn them into 6 binary sequence by $y=\lceil x\ast {10}^{9}\rceil \phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}mod\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}2$.
**Step 2:**- Extend the plain gray image matrix to an 1-dimensional integer sequence, and transform the integer sequence into a binary sequence.
**Step 3:**- Do exclusive OR for the binary sequence with the 6 chaotic binary sequences, respectively, then get 6 diffused binary sequences

#### 3.2. Encryption Process

#### 3.2.1. Bit-Level Permutation Stage

**Step 1:**- Extend the plain image gray value matrix ${({a}_{ij})}_{h\times w}$ to a binary sequence: $E=\{{E}_{1},{E}_{2},\cdots ,{E}_{h\ast 8w}\}$. Then, turn E into 8 different bit planes: ${B}_{1},{B}_{2},\cdots ,{B}_{8}$ by the following rules: ${B}_{1}=\left\{{E}_{i}\right|i\equiv 1\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}mod\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}8,i=1,2,\cdots ,h\ast 8w\}$, ${B}_{2}=\left\{{E}_{i}\right|i\equiv 2\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}mod\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}8,i=1,2,\cdots ,h\ast 8w\}$, ${B}_{3}=\left\{{E}_{i}\right|i\equiv 3\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}mod\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}8,i=1,2,\cdots ,h\ast 8w\}$, ${B}_{4}=\left\{{E}_{i}\right|i\equiv 4\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}mod\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}8,i=1,2,\cdots ,h\ast 8w\}$, ${B}_{5}=\left\{{E}_{i}\right|i\equiv 5\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}mod\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}8,i=1,2,\cdots ,h\ast 8w\}$, ${B}_{6}=\left\{{E}_{i}\right|i\equiv 6\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}mod\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}8,i=1,2,\cdots ,h\ast 8w\}$, ${B}_{7}=\left\{{E}_{i}\right|i\equiv 7\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}mod\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}8,i=1,2,\cdots ,h\ast 8w\}$, ${B}_{8}=\left\{{E}_{i}\right|i\equiv 0\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}mod\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}8,i=1,2,\cdots ,h\ast 8w\}$.
**Step 2:**- Get 8 chaotic sequences of size $w\ast h$ by Equations (3) and (4) with 8 pairs parameters (${x}_{0}$, k), and denote them as ${F}_{i}=\{{F}_{i1},{F}_{i2},\cdots ,{F}_{iw\ast h}\},i=1,\cdots ,8$. If the output $|{y}_{i}|$ is larger than 1, we let ${y}_{i}=\frac{\sqrt{k-1}-{y}_{i}}{\sqrt{k-1}}$ in Equation (3) and ${y}_{i}=\frac{\sqrt{k-1}-1+{y}_{i}}{\sqrt{k-1}-1}$ in Equation (4), and if the output ${y}_{i}<0$, then ${y}_{i}=\left|{y}_{i}\right|$. Then, sort ${F}_{i}$ in ascending order and get 8 index order sequences ${I}_{i}=\{{I}_{i1},{I}_{i2},\cdots ,{I}_{ih\ast w}\},i=1,2,\cdots ,8$.
**Step 3:**- Permutate the binary sequence ${B}_{i}$ by ${I}_{i}$ in the following way to get a shuffled binary sequence ${T}_{i}=\left\{{T}_{ij}\right|j=1,2,\cdots ,h\ast w\}$:$$\begin{array}{c}\hfill {T}_{ij}={B}_{{I}_{ij}},i=1,\cdots ,8,j=1,\cdots ,h\ast w\end{array}$$
**Step 4:**- Rearrange the 8 permutated binary sequences ${T}_{i},i=1,2,\cdots ,8$ into the permutated sequence J with size $h\ast 8w$ in the following way:$$J=\{{T}_{11},{T}_{21},\cdots ,{T}_{81},{T}_{12},{T}_{22},\cdots ,{T}_{82},\cdots ,{T}_{1h\ast w},{T}_{2h\ast w},\cdots ,{T}_{8h\ast w}\}$$
**Step 5:**- Divide the intermediate binary sequence J into $h\ast w$ blocks: ${K}_{1}=\{{J}_{1},{J}_{2},\cdots ,{J}_{8}\}$, ${K}_{2}=\{{J}_{9},{J}_{10},\cdots ,{J}_{16}\}$, ⋯, ${K}_{(h\ast w)}=\{{J}_{h\ast 8w-7},{J}_{h\ast 8w-6},\cdots ,{J}_{h\ast 8w}\}$, then change each block into an integer, and get the permutated integer sequence $Int=\{Int(1),Int(2),\cdots ,Int(h\ast w)\}$, and reshape to the permutated image.

#### 3.2.2. Pixel-Level Diffusion Stage

**Step 1:****Step 2:**- For each $Int(k)\in Int,k=1,2,\cdots ,h\ast w$, do the following operations:$$\{\begin{array}{l}te{m}_{2}=Int(k)\oplus te{m}_{1}\oplus ran{d}_{2}(k)\\ C(k)=(ran{d}_{1}(te{m}_{0})+te{m}_{2}),\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}mod\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}256\\ te{m}_{0}=k;te{m}_{1}=C(k)\end{array}$$
**Step 3:**- Reshape the encrypted integer sequence C back to the 2-dimensional gray value matrix of size $h\ast w$ to form the finally encrypted image.

#### 3.3. Decryption Process

#### 3.3.1. Pixel-Level Diffusion Decryption Stage

**Step 1:**- For the encrypted image, turn it into an integer sequence: $C=\{C(1),C(2),\cdots ,C(h\ast w)\}$.
**Step 2:**- Obtain 2 CDCS chaotic sequences again by Equations (3) and (4) with the same parameters used in the encryption procedure, respectively. Then they are quantified by $y=\lceil x\ast {10}^{9}\rceil \phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}mod\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}256$ and named $ran{d}_{1}^{\prime}$, $ran{d}_{2}^{\prime}$, respectively.
**Step 3:**- Let the initial value $te{m}_{0}^{\prime}=h\ast w-1,te{m}_{1}^{\prime}=C(h\ast w-1)$. For each $C(k)\in C,k=h\ast \phantom{\rule{3.33333pt}{0ex}}w,h\ast \phantom{\rule{3.33333pt}{0ex}}(w-1),\cdots ,2$, do the following operations to get the permutated sequence $In{t}^{\prime}$:$$\{\begin{array}{l}te{m}_{2}^{\prime}=(C(k)-ran{d}_{1}^{\prime}(te{m}_{0}^{\prime})),(\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}mod\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}256),\\ In{t}^{\prime}(k)=te{m}_{2}^{\prime}\oplus te{m}_{1}^{\prime}\oplus ran{d}_{2}^{\prime}(k-1),\\ te{m}_{0}^{\prime}=k-1;te{m}_{1}^{\prime}=C(k-1).\end{array}$$

#### 3.3.2. Bit-Level Permutation Decryption Stage

**Step 1:**- Extend the decrypted sequence $In{t}^{\prime}$ to a binary sequence $G=\{{g}_{1},{g}_{2},\cdots ,{g}_{h\ast 8w}\}$, where $h\ast w$ is the length of $In{t}^{\prime}$, respectively. Then, turn binary sequence G into 8 different bit planes ${T}_{1},{T}_{2},\cdots ,{T}_{8}$ by the following rules: ${T}_{1}=\left\{{g}_{i}\right|i\equiv 1\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}mod\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}8,i=1,2,\cdots ,h\ast 8w\}$, ${T}_{2}=\left\{{g}_{i}\right|i\equiv 2\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}mod\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}8,i=1,2,\cdots ,h\ast 8w\}$, ${T}_{3}=\left\{{g}_{i}\right|i\equiv 3\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}mod\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}8,i=1,2,\cdots ,h\ast 8w\}$, ${T}_{4}=\left\{{g}_{i}\right|i\equiv 4\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}mod\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}8,i=1,2,\cdots ,h\ast 8w\}$, ${T}_{5}=\left\{{g}_{i}\right|i\equiv 5\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}mod\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}8,i=1,2,\cdots ,h\ast 8w\}$, ${T}_{6}=\left\{{g}_{i}\right|i\equiv 6\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}mod\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}8,i=1,2,\cdots ,h\ast 8w\}$, ${T}_{7}=\left\{{g}_{i}\right|i\equiv 7\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}mod\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}8,i=1,2,\cdots ,h\ast 8w\}$, ${T}_{8}=\left\{{g}_{i}\right|i\equiv 0\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}mod\phantom{\rule{0.166667em}{0ex}}\phantom{\rule{4pt}{0ex}}8,i=1,2,\cdots ,h\ast 8w\}$.
**Step 2:**- Get the 8 chaotic sequences of size $w\times h$ again by Equations (3) and (4) with the 8 pairs same parameters (${x}_{0}$, k) used in the encryption procedure, and denote them as ${H}_{i}=\{{H}_{i1},{H}_{i2},\cdots ,{H}_{iw\ast h}\},i=1,\cdots ,8$. If the output $|{y}_{i}|$ is larger than 1, we let ${y}_{i}=\frac{\sqrt{k-1}-{y}_{i}}{\sqrt{k-1}}$ in Equation (3) and ${y}_{i}=\frac{\sqrt{k-1}-1+{y}_{i}}{\sqrt{k-1}-1}$ in Equation (4), and if the output ${y}_{i}<0$, then ${y}_{i}=\left|{y}_{i}\right|$. Then, sort ${H}_{i}$ in ascending order and get 8 index order sequences ${I}_{i}^{\prime}=\{{I}_{i1}^{\prime},{I}_{i2}^{\prime},\cdots ,{I}_{ih\ast w}^{\prime}\},i=1,2,\cdots ,8$.
**Step 3:**- Permutate the binary sequence ${T}_{i}$ by ${I}_{i}^{\prime}$, in the following way to obtain the original binary sequence ${B}_{i}^{\prime}$:$$\begin{array}{c}\hfill {B}_{{I}_{ij}^{\prime}}^{\prime}={T}_{ij}=,i=1,\cdots ,8,j=1,\cdots ,h\ast w\end{array}$$
**Step 4:**- Rearrange the 8 permutated binary sequences ${B}_{1}^{\prime},\cdots ,{B}_{8}^{\prime}$ into the permutated sequence P of size $h\ast 8w$ in the following way: $Q=\{{B}_{1}^{\prime}(1),{B}_{2}^{\prime}(1),\cdots ,{B}_{8}^{\prime}(1)$, ${B}_{1}^{\prime}(2),{B}_{2}^{\prime}(2),\cdots ,{B}_{8}^{\prime}(2),\cdots ,$ ${B}_{1}^{\prime}(h\ast w),{B}_{2}^{\prime}(h\ast w),\cdots ,{B}_{8}^{\prime}(h\ast w)\}$.
**Step 5:**- Divide the intermediate binary sequence Q into $(h\ast w)$ blocks: ${Y}_{1}=\{{B}_{1}^{\prime},{B}_{2}^{\prime},\cdots ,{B}_{8}^{\prime}\}$, ${Y}_{2}=\{{B}_{9}^{\prime},{B}_{10}^{\prime},\cdots ,{B}_{16}^{\prime}\}$, ⋯, ${Y}_{h\ast w}=\{{B}_{h\ast 8w-7}^{\prime},{B}_{h\ast 8w-6}^{\prime},\cdots ,{B}_{h\ast 8w}\}$, then turn each block into an integer, and get the decrypted integer sequence $P=\{P(1),P(2),\cdots ,P(h\ast w)\}$.
**Step 6:**- Reshape the decrypted integer sequence P back to the 2-dimensional gray value matrix of size $h\ast w$ to get the finally decrypted image.
