A study on encryption using three-dimensional cellular automata

S. Amirthalingama,*, K. Lathab

ABSTRACT:     With the exponential growth of information being transmitted as a result of various networks, the issues related to providing security to transmit information have considerably increased. Mathematical models were proposed to consolidate the data being transmitted and to protect the same from being tampered with. Work was carried out on the application of 1D and 2D cellular automata (CA) rules for data encryption and decryption in cryptography. A lot more work needs to be done to develop suitable algorithms and 3D CA rules for encryption and description of 3D chaotic information systems. Suitable coding for the algorithms are developed and the results are evaluated for the performance of the algorithms. Here 3D cellular automata encryption and decryption algorithms are used to provide security of data by arranging plain texts and images into layers of cellular automata by using the cellular automata neighbourhood system. This has resulted in highest order of security for transmitted data.
