Abstract

In this paper, we evaluate the security of a double-image encryption technique based on an asymmetric algorithm. Compared with traditional cryptosystems based on a phase-truncated Fourier transform, the technique is able to improve the security of the encryption by combining a joint transform correlator; consequently, the encryption scheme is immune to some common attacks. We propose a special attack based on a phase retrieval algorithm with median filtering and normalization operation to break the cryptosystem. Low key sensitivity of a position parameter set has been found and an additional constraint is utilized to improve the attack to simplify the process and further decrease the computational time. Numerical simulation results show that the cryptosystem is vulnerable to the proposed special attack.
