In the contemporary era, technological innovations like cloud computing and Internet of Things (IoT) pave way for diversified applications producing multimedia content. Especially large volumes of image data, in medical and other domains, are produced. Cloud infrastructure is widely used to reap benefits such as scalability and availability. However, security and privacy of imagery is in jeopardy when outsourced it to cloud directly. Many compression and encryption techniques came into

Compressive sensing (CS) used in existing methods to improve security. However, most of the schemes suffer from the problem of inability to perform compression and encryption simultaneously besides ending up with large key size. In this paper, we proposed a framework known as Cloud Image Security Framework (CISF) leveraging outsourced image security. The framework has an underlying algorithm known as Hybrid Image Security Algorithm (HISA). It is based on compressive sensing, simultaneous sensing and encryption besides random pixel exchange to ensure multiple transformations of input image. The empirical study revealed that the CISF is more effective, secure with acceptable compression performance over the state of the art methods.
