In present age chaos based cryptosystem has gained attention in research of information security and number of chaos based image encryption algorithms has been proposed. In this paper, a new symmetric image encryption algorithm based on multiple chaotic maps is proposed. In the proposed algorithm, the plain image is first scrambled using generalized Arnold Cat Map. Further, the scrambled image at a particular iteration is encrypted using chaotic sequences generated by one-dimensional Logistic Map after preprocessing them to integers. The experimental results depicts that the proposed algorithm can successfully encrypt and decrypt grayscale images with secret keys. The simulation analysis also exhibit that the proposed method is loss-less, secure and efficient measured in terms of statistical tests, key sensitivity test and some well known tests like NPCR, UACI and entropy.
