Abstract—Cryptography techniques plays important role in image security systems in communication. There are many cryptographic algorithms are used to protect or hide confidential data from unauthorized access. Encryption is used to protect data in networks in unreadable form. On the other way, Decryption is used to access unreadable form to original form. This paper consists of comparison between four most common Encryption/Decryption algorithms: DES, 3DES, AES AND BLOWFISH in terms of showing these parameters: block size, correlation, entropy values, key size, rounds, time consumption and throughput of algorithms. The results show that Blowfish algorithm is more suitable than other algorithms for protection of confidential data.
