Abstract

With the rise in internet users, the need for security has increased as well. The first step in securing digital information is through the use of passwords. These text bases passwords are then converted to hash values. However, they are susceptible to attacks like man in the middle attacks and other hacks. Information leaks proves fatal in such scenarios. To combat these issues, we have proposed a new system that has lower computational requirements and utilizes visual cryptography and text steganography. We have also proposed using visual cryptography with utilizes meaningful shares to hide the intent of the images.User’s secret information is used to form an image which is divided and shared over multiples parties.This results in no single party having complete information.The benefit of this is that a hack at any one user won’t compromise user’s information. With the number of online users now in billions,this system has a huge scope and will prove important for information security when privacy and security are of paramount importance.
