Efficient Transmission of 2D Chaotic Maps Encrypted Images with DWT-Based SC-FDMA LTE System
Periodica Polytechnica Electrical Engineering and Computer Science
The single-carrier frequency division multiple access (SC-FDMA) is a promising technique that has been adopted as an uplink transmission scheme in the long-term evolution (LTE) cellular system. This is attributed to its advantages such as the low peak-to-average power ratio (PAPR) and the utilization of frequency-domain equalizers to resolve the problem of inter-symbol interference (ISI). In this paper, a Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT) based SC-FDMA system is proposed for the effective
... ssion of encrypted images. The 2D Chaotic baker map encryption algorithm has been used to encrypt images to enhance their security during transmission via SC-FDMA- based systems. The performance of the process of encrypted image transmission using the 2D Chaotic baker map algorithm with wavelet transform-based SC-FDMA (DWT SC-FDMA) system is evaluated in terms of different performance metrics, with comparison to Discrete Fourier Transform SC-FDMA (DFT SC-FDMA) and, Discrete Cosine Transform SC-FDMA (DCT SC-FDMA) systems. The viability of the proposed scheme was tested with different wireless channel models and different subcarriers mapping schemes. Experimental results show that the proposed method of the encrypted image transmission via the DWT SC-FDMA system provides a remarkable performance gain compared to the other versions of the SC-FDMA system in terms of the PSNR, and the BER metrics in the wireless channel models. It also demonstrates the effectiveness of the proposed scheme and adds a degree of encryption to the transmitted images through the wireless channels.
