Tagged visual cryptography with access control

Tagged visual cryptography with access control Visual cryptography is a way to encrypt the secret image into several meaningless share images. Noted that no information can be obtained if not all of the shares are collected. Stacking the share images, the secret image can be retrieved. The share images are meaningless to owner which results in difficult to manage. Tagged visual cryptography is a skill to print a pattern onto meaningless share images. After that, users can easily manage their own share images according to the printed pattern. Besides, access control is another popular topic to allow a user or a group to see the own authorizations. In this paper, a self-authentication mechanism with loss less construction ability for image secret sharing scheme is proposed. The experiments provide the positive data to show the feasibility of the proposed scheme.
