3D Content, Chaotic system, 3D model.


The rapidly growing 3D content exchange over the internet makes securing 3D content became a very important issue. The solution for this issue is to encrypting data of 3D content, which included two main parts texture map and 3D models. The standard encryption methods such as AES and DES are not a suitable solution for 3D applications due to the structure of 3D content, which must maintain dimensionality and spatial stability. So, these problems are overcome by using chaotic maps in cryptography, which provide confusion and diffusion by providing uncorrelated numbers and randomness. Various works have been applied in the field of 3D content-encryption based on the chaotic system. This survey will attempt to review the approaches and aspects of the structure used for 3D content encryption methods for different papers. It found the methods that used chaotic maps with large keyspace are more robust to various attacks than other methods that used encryption schemes without chaotic maps. The methods that encrypting texture, polygon, and vertices for 3D content provide full protection than another method that provides partial protection.
