In an increasing number of image and video processing problems, cryptographic techniques are used to enforce content access control, identity verification and authentication, and privacy protection. The combination of cryptography and signal processing is an exciting emerging field. This introductory paper gives an overview of approaches and challenges that exist in applying cryptographic primitives to important image and video processing problems, including (partial) content encryption, secure face recognition, and secure biometrics. This paper aims to help the community in appreciating the utility and challenges of cryptographic techniques in image and video processing.
