Abstract: In today’s world, the enhancement in internet technologies, digital data are mostly used to share the information in public networks. There are many traditional security techniques used to provide security to the digital information. But the existing methods don’t provide much of the security to digital media like image, video, audio, etc. The digital watermarking is employed in the protection of digital information. This paper gives a review on digital image watermarking based on the visual cryptography to reach secure protection for the images. The secret information can be inserted in the original images. The secret key is generated from the watermark image with the help of visual cryptography to claim the ownership of images. Various types of Visual Cryptography and Digital Image Watermarking techniques are explained in real time application.
