Besides ever increasing digital world, the importance of information security aspects becomes increasingly clear day by day. Several solutions are introduced to provide the required security for various applications and encryption is one of these solutions [2]. In image encryption, conventional algorithms encounter some kinds of complexity due to high amount of data that should be processed. In this paper, a new method is introduced for image encryption using PCA method. This algorithm is more advantageous especially in applications that integrity of database is more important, such as a prison and the prisoner’s photo database. In such cases, the security system should provide two major requirements:1) avoid changing an image in the database and 2) hiding real images from unauthorized access. The simulation results show that the mentioned method is capable to manage these two requirements properly.
