In this paper, a chaotic multiple-image encryption algorithm using block scrambling and dynamic DNA coding is designed. The algorithm can achieve simultaneous encryption of many different types of images. Firstly, a new block scrambling algorithm is proposed, which is divided into two scrambling modes according to the size of the initial block. And it combines with the cyclic shift operation to achieve scrambling. Secondly, dynamic DNA coding is utilized to diffuse images, which enhances the complexity and security of the proposed multiple-image encryption algorithm. Through the analysis of key space, correlation, information entropy, histogram, differential attacks and robustness, it is verified that the algorithm is safe and effective. Experimental results show that the new multiple-image encryption algorithm is suitable for multiple color and gray images encryption. The algorithm has excellent encryption performance, and can be applied in secure communication.
