A (k ، n) رمزنگاری تصویری مبتنی بر AMBTC قابل برگشت جزئی با استفاده از یک تصویر مرجع-2019
Recently, Yang et al. introduced a ðk; nÞ approach called Reversible Absolute moment block truncation coding Visual Cryptography Scheme (RAVCS) (Yang et al., 2017) to conceal a secret image into n AMBTC shares. However, a large number of reference images is used in their method. To reduce the number of reference images, a ðk; nÞ PRAVCS using one AMBTC reference image is introduced. In encoding phase, a binary secret image is shared into n AMBTC shadow images according to the base matrices generated by two proposed constructions. In decoding phase, the secret image is recovered by stacking sufficient bitmaps, and the AMBTC reference image is partially recovered as well. When n AMBTC shares are used, losslessly reconstruction for the reference image is obtained. Theoretical analysis and experiments by the proposed method are demonstrated to show the effectiveness. Moreover, Construction 1 has larger contrast, while Construction 2 achieves higher reversibility for more thresholds.
