Efficient matrix key homomorphic encryption of medical images

Prabhavathi Krishnegowda, Anandaraju M. Boregowda


A sure way of providing privacy to sensitive images is to encrypt them, especially when they are stored in a public cloud server. Homomorphic encryption enables arithmetic operations over encrypted data without access to the secret key. This facility can be well harnessed for secure outsourced image processing by exploiting the available computational capabilities of modern cloud servers. This paper presents a new homomorphic image encryption scheme that uses integer matrix keys. The homomorphic operations are carried out in the finite field Zp to avail the advantages of integer arithmetic and to limit the cipher text sizes to reasonable levels. Our method does not use any error vector as in learning with errors (LWE) to improve the security.
