A single-channel color image encryption is proposed based on the modified Gerchberg–Saxton algorithm (MGSA) and mutual encoding in the Fresnel domain. Similar to the double random phase encoding (DRPE), this encryption scheme also employs a pair of phase-only functions (POFs) as encryption keys. But the two POFs are generated by the use of the MGSA rather than a random function generator. In the encryption process, only one color component is needed to be encrypted when these POFs are mutually served as the second encryption keys. As a result, a more compact and simple color encryption system based on one-time-pad, enabling only one gray cipheretext to be recorded and transmitted when holographic recording is used, is obtained. Moreover, the optical setup is lensless, thus easy to be implemented and the system parameters and wavelength can be served as additional keys to further enhance the security of the system. The feasibility and effectiveness of the proposed method are demonstrated by numerical results.
