Abstract: Visual secret sharing (VSS) is a well-known technique from the past few decades for data security. Recently, XOR based VSS has attracted many researchers due to its lossless or good visual quality of reconstructed secret image. Cheating in visual cryptography based VSS was introduced by Horng et. al. in 2006. Cheating occurs when a dishonest participant presents fake share and performs stacking of fake share with honest participants who have genuine share, thereby revealing the fake secret image instead of the original secret image. Cheating occurs when some XOR based VSS are exposed to collusion attacks. Here, in this paper, we have demonstrated and proved that there is a security issue in existing XOR based VSS schemes.
