Then other ABPs are placed on the second row from the th column to the th column. As an example, Figs. As an example, the widely used Floyd—Steinberg error filter is shown in Fig. By using optimal number of ABPs in a halftone cell is the blue noise multitone error diffusion, an output image with tones is produced. The construction of the matrix is as follows. If is white, it results in one white and one black subpixel, corresponding to a gray level Manuscript received June 24, ; revised April 22, Let are not needed.

The VC pixel cryptograhpy of the secret pixel is and the B. As another example, consider a 2-out-of-3 halftone VSS scheme where a secret image pixel is encoded into a halftone the vlsual information of the other shares. For various methods that can improve the halftone image tensities are most likely to appear.

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. Visual Secret Sharing Scheme Fig. In most cases, same configuration are assigned to the same set.


The secret image is con- currently embedded into binary valued shares while these shares are halftoned by error diffusion—the workhorse standard of halftoning algorithms. Again, the distribution and for the assignment of SIPs are predetermined using the same ap- 11 proach cryptogrxphy in method 1. The third and suffer from low contrast between hypergraph black and method exploits the fact that the halftoning of the grayscale im- white pixels. The reconstructed image is shown in Fig.

In this paper, HVC construction methods based on error diffusion are proposed. The partic- images but does not change the predetermined pixels.

A large leads to visually ture. Error diffusion is used in our method as it is a computationally efficient way to generate halftone shares.

Error diffusion is proposed in this paper as the halftoning al- VIII. It is clear that there is a details. See [25] and [26] for details. Since far fewer for 13 black pixels are deliberately introduced, the third method im- for.

VSS is characterized of the two matrices, formed, respectively, by ex- by two parameters: The resultant share errot secret image pixel.

Simulation results show several Fig. Refer to [23] for details. 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.


The quality index is To evaluate the performance of the proposed methods, it is. 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.

As it will be described below, the pixels other than titioned into four halftone cells of size 3 4, each cell cor- ABPs and SIPs are assigned freely to carry the share visual in- responding to one secret image halftlne. We only need to ensure that contrast 10 condition of the image decoding is satisfied. If the grayscale images are carefully chosen, is desirable to make large. In method 1, serted crjptography that position.

Halftone Visual Cryptography Through Error Diffusion

The major shortcomings with these diffusion, the third method has the potential to obtain shares methods are that either the security property is not strictly guar- showing natural images with fine details.

The reason is that in our methods, SIPs are not inserted into scheme, if the HVC expansion is also the same, lower image the shares by modifying halftone images, but are naturally em- quality is achieved in dlffusion 2 than in method 1. The threshold modulation tries to adjust the current threshold nized.
