Abstract: Visual Cryptography is a process of creating shares from an Image so that it would becomes unreadable for intruder or unauthenticated person. There are various measures on which performance of visual cryptography scheme depends, such as pixel expansion, contrast, security, accuracy, computational complexity, share generated is meaningful or meaningless, type of secret image. This technique encrypts a secret image into shares such that stacking a sufficient number of shares reveals the secret image.This paper implements visual cryptography for color images in a biometric application. The project modules have a strong authentication and robustness scheme. In this project, face authentication scheme helps in achieving robustness by locating an image face from n input image.
Keywords: Face Detection, Color Recovery, Visual Cryptography, Image Authentication, Pixel by Pixel Matching.
