With the wide/rapid spread of distributed systems for information processing, such as cloud computing and social networking, not only transmission but also processing is done on the internet. However, cloud environments have some serious issues for end users, such as unauthorized access, data leaks, and privacy compromise, due to unreliability of providers and some accidents. Accordingly, we first focus on compressible image encryption schemes, which have been proposed for encryption-then-compression (EtC) systems, although the traditional way for secure image transmission is to use a compression-then encryption (CtE) system. EtC systems allow us to close unencrypted images to network providers, because encrypted images can be directly compressed even when the images are multiply recompressed by providers. Next, we address the issue of learnable encryption. Huge training data sets are required for machine learning and deep learning algorithms to obtain high performance. However, it requires large cost to collect enough training data while maintaining people’s privacy.
Hitoshi Kiya received his B.E and M.E. degrees from Nagaoka University of Technology, in 1980 and 1982 respectively, and his Dr. Eng. degree from Tokyo Metropolitan University in 1987. In 1982, he joined Tokyo Metropolitan University, where he became a Full Professor in 2000. From 1995 to 1996, he attended the University of Sydney, Australia as a Visiting Fellow. He is a Fellow of IEEE, IEICE and ITE. He currently serves as President of APSIPA, and he served as Inaugural Vice President (Technical Activities) of APSIPA from 2009 to 2013, and as Regional Director-at-Large for Region 10 of the IEEE Signal Processing Society from 2016 to 2017. He was also President of the IEICE Engineering Sciences Society from 2011 to 2012, and he served there as a Vice President and Editor-in-Chief for IEICE Society Magazine and Society Publications. He was Editorial Board Member of eight journals, including IEEE Trans. on Signal Processing, Image Processing, and Information Forensics and Security, Chair of two technical committees and Member of nine technical committees including APSIPA Image, Video, and Multimedia Technical Committee (TC), and IEEE Information Forensics and Security TC. He has organized a lot of international conferences, in such roles as TPC Chair of IEEE ICASSP 2012 and as General Co-Chair of IEEE ISCAS 2019. He has received numerous awards, including eight best paper awards.
