In this paper, a new chaotic image encryption scheme is proposed, which uses the combination of stream cipher and block cipher to spread and then uses the Logistic mapping matrix to perform the block sort transformation to complete the confusion. The specific method is as follows: First, perform the triple XOR operation, non-linear S-box transformation and linear cyclic shift transformation on the key. Second, the triple XOR operation of the transformed key and the plaintext and Logistic mapping sequence are used to obtain the semi-ciphertext. And set the obtained semi-ciphertext and plaintext as key components of the next round of encryption. Finally, the transformation of sorting and partition of the Logistic mapping matrix are used to confuse the semi-ciphertext. The experimental results show that the proposed algorithm improves the encryption efficiency, has good security and can resist common attacks.

Keywords: Logistic mapping; block confusion; stream cipher; block cipher; image encryption
