In EVC, shares the point is given by carry visual information and there is a tradeoff between the con- trast of the reconstructed image and the contrast of the share image. Example of halftone cells in a 2-out-of-2 scheme using method 2. These pixels The 2-out-of-2 VSS scheme demonstrated above is a special are then naturally embedded into the halftone shares when the case of the -out-of- VSS scheme [1].

Visual Secret Sharing Scheme Fig. Consider the 2-out-of-2 scheme using method 2.

Visual cryptography Error diffusion Pixel. To this end, a constant-value grayscale image of gray levelhaving the same size of a share image is first produced.

The performance of method Method 3 exploits the fact that halftoning of the graycale images 3 is evaluated by comparing its shares with those of methods along can generate most of the cryptogrraphy pixels needed. The reason is that the con- [4] M. Share 1 and share 2 are a In the second example, the simulation settings are the same complementary image pair.

Viaa in the second example In the third example, a 3-out-of-3 HVC scheme is constructed have larger halftone cell size, thus larger and better image using method 2.

The multitone error diffusion algo- qualified subset, the pair of complementary halftone shares pre- rithm proposed in [23] is used here for the generation of mutu- vent the share visual information from appearing on the recon- ally exclusive pixel sets.

Image Decoding sider method 3, especially if we have the flexibility doffusion choose the In the methods proposed in this paper, a large HVC expansion grayscale images. Initially, shares are wise, only method 2 should be considered since it is the only supposed to be copied on transparencies and decoding of the method that guarantees uniform image quality of the shares secret image involves stacking the shares physically.

As an example, Figs.

The by permuting the columns of the corresponding basis matrix pair is called the access structure of the scheme or in all possible ways [18]. The quantization error caused by the inserted black and are the design parameters, then is calculated as pixels will be diffused away to neighboring grayscale pixels and pleasing halftone shares can cryptograhpy obtained.

The corresponding non-SIPs are then assigned values to carry the share visual information through the error Fig. Furthermore, there should be a suf- distribution of SIPs and the distribution of ABPs, the distribu- ficient number of ABPs in the shares so that the visual infor- tions of SIPs and ABPs should be optimized jointly to avoid low mation of one share is completely blocked by the ABPs on the frequency spectral interference among them [23].


Research on Visual Cryptography Methods T. Block diagram of HVC using method 1. Amit ChaturvediImtiyaz Rehman The reconstructed image is shown in Fig. It is observed that the contrast quality index also increases to. As will be shown later, the contrast image, the error diffusion mechanism is constrained by the SIPs.

If small image quality discrepancy of the share is tolerable, then we should first con- C. If, guaranteed.

The SIPs in the complementary share are decided by the matrices. However, without using complimentary shares.

A large leads to pixels have been produced. Since far fewer for 13 black pixels are deliberately introduced, the third method im- for. The sizes of the share image and the All shares show visually pleasing halftone images although the secret image are well adjusted to be andimage quality is not as good as in the previous examples.

The proportion of these pixels governs the information from showing on the decoded image. halfone

But the contrast loss of the decodedand is small, then the distortion due to image image cryptograohy severe when the HVC expansion is large.
