Steganography refers to the science of “invisible” communication.

We propose a secret sharing algorithm which allows a secret image to be divided into (n : n >; 2) image shares. The share generation algorithm works by dividing one 8-bit pixel of original secret image into two parts of 4-bits each. We find a pair of 4-bits whose XOR gives a specific 4-bits of secret image. Each pair is then concatenated together t...
