In this digital era, most of the hospitals and medical labs are storing and sharing their medical data using third party cloud platforms for saving maintenance cost and storage and also to access data from anywhere. The cloud platform is not entirely a trusted party as the data is under the control of cloud service providers, which results in privacy leaks so that the data is to be encrypted while uploading into the cloud. The data can be used for diagnosis and analysis, for that the similar images to be retrieved as per the need of the doctor. In this paper, we propose an algorithm that uses discrete cosine transformation frequency and logistic sine map to encrypt an image, and the feature vector is computed on the encrypted image. The encrypted images are transferred to the cloud picture database, and feature vectors are uploaded to the feature database. Pearson’s Correlation Coefficient is calculated on the feature vector and is used as a measure to retrieve similar images. From the investigation outcomes, we can get an inference that this algorithm can resist against predictable attacks and geometric attacks with strong robustness.
