The topic of quantum chaos has begun to draw increasing attention in recent years. Dissipative quantum maps can be characterized by sensitive dependence on initial conditions,like classical maps. By using significant properties of quantum chaotic map such as ergodicity, sensitivity to initial condition and control parameter, one-way computation and random like behavior, we present a new scheme for image encryption. Based on all analysis and experimental results, it can be concluded that, the proposed scheme is efficient and secure. Although the chaotic map presented in this paper aims at image encryption, it is not just limited to this area and can be widely applied in other information security fields.
