H.264 videos have been the most shared type of video format in recent times and hence its security is a major issue. The techniques presented in the recent times incur complex computations. The major research objective is to design an efficient Chaotic Selective Video Encryption (CSVE) technique which can result in a better visual degradation of the encrypted video with less computational complexity. In the proposed work, in order to secure the H.264 videos, two one-dimensional logistic maps are cross coupled in the chaotic encryption technique which uses a lookup table for data conversion. The technique is evaluated using different performance metrics like Peak Signal to Noise Ratio (PSNR), entropy, statistical analysis etc along with the traditional logistic map. The work is compared with some recent techniques in terms of PSNR and was found out that the proposed technique has better encryption effect.
