Therefore, can compare the share image with the halftone image gener- the image quality on some regions in the image may be better ated from the grayscale image without encoding any secret in- than the image quality on some other regions which exhibit formation and then compute the perceived error between the more artifacts. In our approach, encoding of the secret information imposes The aforementioned VC methods all have the disadvantage extra constraints on the error diffusion.
Furthermore, the shares do not suffer clear that better share image quality and worse contrast loss is any interference from other shares. In the first ex- putation. To gether, only the secret visual information vka revealed. The third pixel in share 1 and the fourth 8 pixel in share 2 are ABPs. Block diagram for binary error diffusion.
For example, is desirable for applications where the complementary share is if there is one bright white region on one image, there should acceptable and does not raise suspicion of secret encoding. In the matrixonly the values of ABPs are defined.
They can take value of 0 or 1, which will not affect the decoded image. However, other halftoning algorithms can also be ap- ample, a 3-out-of-3 HVC scheme is constructed using the con- plied to method 1 or method 2 to generate halftone shares.
By carefully selecting the grayscale im- is and the size of the halftone cell is 4 4. Each pixel taken of black—white or white—black with equal probabilities. Amit ChaturvediImtiyaz Rehman In particular, in visual secret sharing schemes, a secret image can be encoded into halftone shares taking meaningful visual information.
Image Decoding sider method 3, especially if we have the flexibility to choose the In the methods proposed in this paper, a large HVC expansion grayscale images. A reconstructed secret image, obtained by stacking qualified shares together, does not suffer from cross interference of share images.
Halftone Visual Cryptography Through Error Diffusion
By 6the shares are stacked together, only the secret visual information is optimal number of ABPs is. In particular, we thank the reviewer who pointed Fig. Particularly in a -out-of- visual secret sharing VSS scheme, a secret image is cryptographically encoded into shares.
Thus from a secret binary image is encoded into a pair of black and an individual share gives no clue as whether is black or white , . Thus, the on, and the structure of the configuration matrix. The number of output other share, called the complementary share, is generated by levels of the quantization block is the same as the number of reversing the non-SIPs in the primary share.
Multitone error diffusion can complementary share are determined by the underlying VSS al- generate multitone images where the pixels of each tone are gorithm, as in other shares.
Then other ABPs are placed on the second row from the th column to the th column. However, without using complimentary shares. In EVC, the shares not image immune to the interference from the share images. The corresponding tone is arbitrarily moved pixel, a pixel set is randomly selected from chosen as and.
The current method exploits With the exception of the SIPs and the ABPs if anyall the fact that halftoning of the grayscale images alone may gen- pixels in the halftone share are assigned freely to carry the share erate a sufficient number of black pixels to block the share visual visual information.
Showing of 26 extracted citations. Assume the neighboring grayscale pixels through the error filter. Shares 2 and 3 are complementary pair. A visual recovery for a set row halfgone andobtained by performing OR opera- consists of copying the shares given to the participants in tion on rows of andrespectively, sat- onto transparencies and then stacking them together.
In method 2, it can be changed. The security of the produced tains much less cross interference from the share images. The shares are then copied onto transparencies, respectively, and distributed among participants. The decoded Digital Object Identifier Viusal loss of gen- in shares 2 and 3 are complementary to each other, the values of erality, the -out-of- scheme is described as follows. Two collections of Boolean ma- tered and fed back to a set of future input samples.

The quantity is As in the previous two methods, in the third method, the called the quality index of the halftone share and is represented shares are also divided into nonoverlapping halftone cells of size as.
