Hey all,

Does OpenCV implement any encryption algorithms? I understand that OpenCV can be used to implement, for example, image encryption, but I want to know if OpenCV provides any image encryption as part of its official release.

Thanks, Fijoy

no, unfortunately, there's no such thing in opencv

Actually it is possible because to make your custom build encryption algorithm using OpenCV processing blocks, since it is basically a series of pixel processing steps which you should be able to revert. So it doesn't come as a prebuilt function, but it is surely possible.

And wow, it is just amazing how people get this basic research published o_O I am baffled...
