In this paper, we propose a novel video encryption scheme based on multiple digital chaotic systems, which is called CVES (Chaotic Video Encryption Scheme). CVES is independent of any video compression algorithms, and can provide high security for real-time digital video with fast encryption speed, and can be simply realized both by hardware and software. Whats more, CVES can be extended to support random retrieval of cipher-video with considerable maximal time-out; the extended CVES is called RRS-CVES (Random-Retrieval-Supported CVES). Essentially speaking, CVES is a universal fast encryption system and can be easily extended to other real-time applications. In CVES, 2^n chaotic maps are used to generate pseudo-random signal to mask the video, and to make pseudo-random permutation of the masked video. Another single chaotic map is employed to initialize and control the above 2^n chaotic maps. Detailed discussions are given to estimate the performance of CVES/RRS-CVES, respectively from the viewpoints of speed, security, realization and experiments.
