Wavelet compression for digital images achieves very high compression with reasonably high image quality and so is widely used in various applications. Adding security to compression algorithms has been proposed in a number of compression systems with the aim reducing the overall cost of compression and encryption. In this paper we propose a combined compression and encryption system based on wavelet transform and examine its security. Our results show that with a relatively small added cost varying degrees of security can be obtained while maintaining the performance of the compression system.
