Efficient transmission of encrypted images with OFDM in the presence of carrier frequency offset
In this paper, the impact of carrier frequency offset (CFO) and CFO compensation on the transmission of encrypted images with different orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) versions is studied. The investigated OFDM versions are thefast Fourier transform OFDM, the discrete cosine transform OFDM, and the discrete wavelet transform OFDM. A comparison between four encryption algorithms with images transmitted through different OFDM versions is presented. These algorithms are data encryption standard, advanced encryption standard, RC6, and chaotic Baker map. This comparison aims to select the most appropriate version of OFDM, and the most suitable image encryption algorithm for efficient image transmission. In the simulation experiments, the peak signal-to-noise ratio at the receiver is used as an evaluation metric for the decrypted image quality.
