Abstract. In this paper, a new quantum color image encryption algorithm based on multiple discrete chaotic systems is proposed. The proposed quantum encryption algorithm utilized the quantum controlled not image generated by chaotic logistic map, asymmetric tent map and logistic Chebyshev map to control the XOR operation in the encryption process. Simulations results and numerical analyses demonstrate that the proposed algorithm has high efficiency and secure against differential and statistical attacks.
