Recent development in the Internet and Web based technologies require faster communication of multimedia data in a secure form. A number of encryption schemes for MPEG have been proposed. In this paper, we evaluate the compression performance of JPEG which has been encrypted with the zig-zag permutation algorithm, suggest a security enhancement to the scheme, and propose an alternative to entropy coding recommended by JPEG to compensate for the compression drop occurring due to permutation.
