A Recursive Threshold Visual Cryptography Scheme

Abhishek Parakh and Subhash Kak

Abstract: This paper presents a recursive hiding scheme for 2 out of 3 secret sharing. In recursive hiding of secrets, the user encodes additional information about smaller secrets in the shares of a larger secret without an expansion in the size of the latter, thereby increasing the efficiency of secret sharing. We present applications of our proposed protocol to images as well as text.
