Paper Abstract

A number of methods have been recently proposed in the literature for the encryption of 2-D information using optical systems based on the Fractional Fourier Transform. In this paper a brief review of the methods proposed to date is presented. A new technique based on a random shifting algorithm is proposed. The new method is compared numerically to the existing methods. A measure of the strength/robustness of the level of encryption of the various techniques is proposed and a comparison is carried out between the methods. Optical implementations are discussed as are robustness of the systems with respect to misalignment and random noise.
