Abstract

We present a novel image-encryption algorithm that employs multichannel and multistage fractional Fourier-domain filtering architecture. We perform the encryption and decryption by randomly filtering the spatial frequency of the image and then recombining the information from the algorithm in a multistage fractional Fourier domain with pure random-intensity-encoded masks and their complements in a multichannel scheme. The algorithm can be implemented iteratively in an electro-optical setup. Numerical simulations have verified the validity of the algorithm.
