Implementation of Steganographic Algorithms Based on Exact Histogram Matching and Colour Visual Cryptography

2019 International Journal of Engineering and Advanced Technology  
Sensitive secret data transmission through internet has been of great security concern which can be overcome by steganographic methods achieved through secret image sharing. Two novel steganographic secret algorithms based on colour visual cryptography and exact histogram specification is proposed in the present study. The former approach combines colour visual cryptography with a secret key to produce less distorted meaningful share images. A specified histogram acts as the key for the second
