With the fast progression of data exchange in an electronic way, information security is becoming more important in data storage and transmission. Because of widely usage of images in industrial process, it is important to protect the confidential image data from unauthorized access. Security of these images while transferring over the internet happens to be more critical, when they are confidential weapon photographs, clandestine military data, furtive architectural designs of financial buildings and top-secret war plan designs, etc. In this paper, we have proposed a new partial symmetric-key based block cipher to meet the special requirements of secure image transfer. The performance of this algorithm is discussed against common attacks such as the brute-force attack, ciphertext attacks and plaintext attacks. The analysis and experimental results show that the proposed algorithms can fully encrypt all types of images. This makes them suitable for securing multimedia applications and shows they have the potential to be used to secure communications in a variety of wired/wireless scenarios and real-time application such as mobile phone services.
