A method of scrambling MPEG video by exchanging the motion vector (MV) in the MPEG bitstream is proposed. It deals directly with the MPEG bitstream and exclusive MPEG encoders are unnecessary. The size of the scrambled bitstream does not increase and image quality is maintained after descrambling. Moreover, the structure of the MPEG bitstream is maintained and can be decoded with a standard MPEG video decoder. We demonstrate the effectiveness of this method through simulation results that reveal unchanged image quality and size of bitstreams.
