Realization of Audio Encryption using Elliptic Curve

Roayat Ismail Abdelfatah, Mohamed E. Nasr, Mohammed A. Alsharqawy


This paper uses Elliptic Curve Cryptography (ECC) to encrypt audio. Smaller key size is the main feature of ECC that secures highly compared to other methods.  A proposed model is based on ECC, 2D Logistic-Lorenz chaotic map and hash function. The parameters of the model are generated using secrete file between the Tx and Rx. A proof of quality is achieved through several tests that grantee a high performance and security.


Logistic, Lorenz, Chaotic Map, 2D Encryption/Decryption, Elliptic Curve, Hash.
