The rapid evolution of network technologies, where computer vision and the Internet seamlessly merge, poses significant challenges in safeguarding end-user data. To address the growing need for secure data in smart environments, lightweight and efficient security solutions are in high demand. Notably, the Trivium, a well-known encrypt stream cipher (eSTREAM) project, has been the target of several attacks. This paper proposes an innovative approach for fast and highly secured image encryption using byte scrambling and a modified version of the Trivium algorithm. The Henon map is utilized to generate random numbers for permutation, reducing time and increasing security. Performance is measured on 100 colour images with different several tests. The results present a fast and robust security system for the transmission process. It is more efficient than the traditional Trivium method. The encrypted-decryption time is reduced by 1:24 times, making it a quick security system for surgical telepresence and multimedia visuals.


Keywords –Fast lightweight encryption algorithm, chaos theory, Henon map, Trivium, secure image, scrambling, block-by-block.
