Image encryption, Chaos Baker map, ECB, CBC, OFB, CFB


This research paper study the application of chaos baker map for digital image encryption in different operation modes. The  employed modes include the  electronic  code  book (ECB), cipher block chaining (CBC), output feedback chaining (OFB), and cipher feedback chaining (CFB). The proposed method works by applying the chaos baker map in different operation modes for encrypting digital images. A group of  tests were carried out to examine the impact of operation modes on chaos baker-based encryption. This is done using several encryption metrics like visual inspection, statistical measures, entropy measure, encryption quality measures, and noise resistance measures. Simulation results demonstrated the effectively of baker-based encryption in CBC mode.
