IMAGE ENCRYPTION USING THE 4TH GENERATION ZUC ALGORITHM

Abstract

In this research, its aim to increase the security level of the mobile systems for the Fourth Generation (4thG), and to study security of images to enhance the information security for users.Long Term Evolution is one of the mobile systems that used inFourth Generation (4thG) cellular networks. Long Term Evolution(LTE) is a modern and newest technology that is emerged to improve the security and service of communication. This work is an attempt to study the LTE security and dealing it with stream cipher algorithm which is called ZUC algorithm . Also, we applied the ZUC algorithm to encrypted image.MATLAB software ver. 2013a is used in this work for the proposed image algorithm.
