English Abstract

Given the importance of data security generated from the Internet of things (IoT) applications such as smart building, healthcare monitoring, smart home and, smart city.

One of the issues in IoT is to handle and protect the huge amount of data generated from IoT heterogeneous devices.

The classical encryption algorithms Data Encryption Standard (DES) and Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) were not suitable for IOT constraint devices, as they have limited memory and processing capabilities.

Therefore, there is a need for encryption model that fits the limited computation resources of IoT devices.

The proposed DNA based encryption algorithm in this thesis, which is a lightweight encryption algorithm for the (IoT) generated data such as images.

The proposed DNA encryption algorithm relies on utilizing the DNA tape for generating strong and completely random key for the data encryption.

This algorithm characterized by its high encryption robustness and strength, due to the randomness in creating the encryption key, logical substitution and set of rules for transposition.

The DNA based encryption algorithm is implemented and experiments were constructed on different sizes and types of images and compared to DES and AES encryption algorithms under the same environmental conditions to evaluate the efficiency of the proposed algorithm regarding, key size, time, and proportion of distortion.

The experimental results reveled that proposed DNA algorithm has lowest encryption time, where it records about 62.5 MSc compared to the other algorithms.

In addition, the proportion of distortion shows a value of 8.687 db.

For the proposed DNA based encryption algorithm, which is comparable to the DES, and AES algorithms
