Paper Abstract

We investigate the performance of an image encryption technique that uses random-phase encoding in both the input plane and the Fourier plane, using partial information of the encrypted image. We first investigate the phase-only information of the encrypted data for decryption. A binary version of the phase-only information is also considered for decryption. Binary images are well suited for optical display and practical implementation. Using partial information of the encrypted image, a reconstructed complex image is generated, which is used for decryption. Tests are performed for both gray-scale and binary images. We show that the phase information of the encrypted image is very important in the reconstruction of the decrypted image. Computer simulations show that for the images tested here, binarization of the encrypted image can recover the original image with low mean squared error.
