Paper Abstract

Efficient encryption algorithms are essential to multimedia data security, since the data size is large and real-time processing is often required. After discussing limitations of previous work on multimedia encryption, we propose a novel methodology for confidentiality, which turns entropy coders into encryption ciphers by using multiple statistical models. The choice of statistical models and the order in which they are applied are kept secret as the key Two encryption schemes are constructed by applying this methodology to the Huffman coder and the QM coder. It is shown that security is achieved without sacrificing the compression performance and the computational speed. The schemes can be applied to most modern compression systems such as MPEG audio, MPEG video and JPEG/JPEG2000 image compression.
