Image data are highly sensitive and prone to incidental decoding by intruders. The security of image data in an insecure network is therefore a major issue. In this paper, we have presented a novel approach for grayscale-image encryption and decryption using Random Hill cipher over SLn(F) associated with discrete wavelet transformation. Earlier techniques for encryption and decryption of image data discussed missing the keys, but in this approach, both the keys and the arrangement of RHC are emphasized. Additionally, keys multiplication side (pre or post) over a grayscale-image data matrix also inevitable to know, to correctly decrypt the encrypted image data. In proposed approach, consider keys from special linear group over field F. The key space of the whole cryptosystem is exorbitant. We have presented a computer simulation with a standard examples and the results is given to analyze the robustness of the proposed technique. Security analysis and detailed comparison among earlier developed techniques with proposed approach are also discussed for the robustness of the technique.
