Therefore, according to the analysis of correlation coefficient, we can draw the conclusion that the effect of image encryption is much better, because the statistical characteristics between pixels of the plaintext image have ceased to exist in the cipher text image.
The state table is used for subsequent generation of pseudo-random bits and then to generate a pseudo-random stream which is XORed with the plaintext to give the cipher text.
One-time pad encryption removes bit dependencies in cipher texts if the key used has its bits independent.
This hidden information can be plain text, cipher text (unintelligible) or images.
Trying to fit the larger cipher text of a I6-digit credit card number back into the 16-digit field poses a "square peg into a round hole" kind of storage problem with consequences that ripple through the business applications that use the data.
To encrypt plaintext, P, with a key, producing cipher text, C, simply compute the bitwise exclusive-or of the key and the plaintext:
