As a primary method, image encryption is widely used to protect the security of image information. In recent years, image encryption pays attention to the combination with DNA computing. In this work, we propose a novel method to correct errors in image encryption, which results from the uncertainty of DNA computing. DNA coding is the key step for DNA computing that could decrease the similarity of DNA sequences in DNA computing as well as correct errors from the process of image encryption and decryption. The experimental results show our method could be used to correct errors in image encryption based on DNA coding. View Full-Text
