Abstract: Recent researches of image encryption algorithms have been increasingly based on chaotic systems. This paper, a new image encryption scheme which employs. The idea is to associate the Hénon attractor and the logistics map, for the construction of a new secret key cryptosystem. We generate values through of the logistics map that will be added to the pixels of the plaintext image. This result modulo 256 will be permuted to another position of the encrypted image. The calculation of this permutation is deducted from the Hénon attractor, which is 2-dimensional, in order to have a significantly increasing the resistance to attacks. The proposed system has the advantage of bigger key space (about 180 bits); high security analysis such as key space analysis, statistical analysis and sensitivity analysis were carried out. The results demonstrate that the proposed system is highly efficient and a robust system.

Keywords: cryptography; secret key; chaos; Hénon map; logistic map.
