Abstract.  The hyperchaotic sequence and the DNA sequence are utilized jointly for image encryption. A four-dimensional hyperchaotic system is used to generate a pseudorandom sequence. The main idea is to apply the hyperchaotic sequence to almost all steps of the encryption. All intensity values of an input image are converted to a serial binary digit stream, and the bitstream is scrambled globally by the hyperchaotic sequence. DNA algebraic operation and complementation are performed between the hyperchaotic sequence and the DNA sequence to obtain a robust encryption performance. The experiment results demonstrate that the encryption algorithm achieves the performance of the state-of-the-art methods in term of quality, security, and robustness against noise and cropping attack.
