This paper represents a new image encryption algorithm based on modifying generalized singular value decomposition (GSVD) by decomposing the plain-image into two segments using GSVD with an exchanged key-image to produce the cipher-image. The exchanged key-image is used as an encrypting and decrypting image. Mathematically, this procedure is represented by transforming the plain-image’s matrix into two different matrices and applying the GSVD with the exchanged key-image’s matrix to obtain the cipher-image’s matrix. The two encoded segments can be kept in several places or assigned to a group of authorized persons. No one can obtain the information of the image easily without the knowledge of the decrypting key. This proposed algorithm is represented as one of the digital image encryption techniques used to enhance the security of images that have been sent between recipients. View Full-Text
