In the recent years, researchers developed image encryption methods based on chaotic systems. This paper proposed new image encryption technique based on new chaotic system by adding two chaotic systems: the Lorenz chaotic system and the Rössler chaotic system. The main advantage of this technique is stronger security, as is shown in the encryption tests.
