Secure content based image retrieval in medical databases

Abstract : In this paper, we propose an implementation in the encrypted domain of a content based image retrieval (CBIR) method. It allows a physician to retrieve the most similar images to a query image in an outsourced database while preserving data confidentiality. Image retrieval is based on image signatures we build in the hormomorphically encrypted wavelet transform domain. Experimental results show it is possible to achieve retrieval performance as good as if images were processed nonencrypted.
