The project aims at proposing novel software algorithms for information security and their hardware implementations. The algorithms will utilize different methods based on number theory and chaos theory. Cryptography and information hiding systems will be developed for different media data types such as text, image, audio and video. The project will investigate different classes of symmetric/asymmetric and stream/block ciphers. In addition, it will explore both steganography and watermarking in spatial and frequency domains. The proposed information security solutions will be evaluated using standard performance measures. The project targets achieving technical outcomes that include hardware prototypes and a website.
