In the era of big data, outsourcing massive data to a remote cloud server is a promising approach. Outsourcing storage and computation services can reduce storage costs and computational burdens. However, public cloud storage brings about new privacy and security concerns since the cloud servers can be shared by multiple users. Privacy-preserving feature extraction techniques are an effective solution to this issue. Because the Rotation Invariant Local Binary Pattern (RILBP) has been widely used in various image processing fields, we propose a new privacy-preserving outsourcing computation of RILBP over encrypted images in this paper (called PPRILBP). To protect image content, original images are encrypted using block scrambling, pixel circular shift, and pixel diffusion when uploaded to the cloud server. It is proved that RILBP features remain unchanged before and after encryption. Moreover, the server can directly extract RILBP features from encrypted images. Analyses and experiments confirm that the proposed scheme is secure and effective, and outperforms previous secure LBP feature computing methods.
