A cipher is meant to encode data that can only be subsequently decoded with the right key. I applied the same idea to image data transmitted across a warped spacetime and subject to the laws of gravitational lensing. In this sense, lensing mass distribution acts as a key. Encoded (distorted) images can only be restored by reverse tracing photon trajectories with this key in hand. You can read more about this idea here.
