Abstract

Image scrambling is a technique used for confidential storage and transmission as well as for image information hiding. In this study, we propose a multi-channel quantum image scrambling method, which applies both color and geometric transformations of an image. This is a simple and reliable method for transforming a meaningful quantum image into a meaningless or disordered one. We performed two simulation experiments, which demonstrated the efficiency and flexibility of the proposed method. Previous studies mainly developed scrambling strategies for grayscale quantum images, whereas the proposed method is effective for the color image scrambling in the quantum computing domain.
