This study proposes a new image encryption scheme based on a generalized Arnold map and Rivest–Shamir–Adleman (RSA) algorithm. First, the parameters of the generalized Arnold map are generated by an asymmetric encryption-system RSA algorithm, and the keystream is produced iteratively. To change the distribution of pixel values, the image data are hidden by XOR diffusion. Second, both rows and columns of the image are cyclically confused to hide the image data again. Then, the additive mode

Test results prove that the encryption scheme proposed in this study is effective and has strong antiattack capabilities and key sensitivity. In addition, because the scheme security relies on the RSA algorithm, it has high security.
