Visual secretsharing (VSS) schemes are used to protect the visual secret bysending n transparencies to different participantsso that k-1 or fewer of them have no informationabout the original image, but the image can be seen by stackingk or more transparencies. However, the revealedsecret image of a conventional VSS scheme is just black and white.The colored k out of n VSS scheme sharinga colored image is first introduced by Verheul and Van Tilborg. In this paper, a new construction for the colored VSS schemeis proposed. This scheme can be easily implemented on basis ofa black & white VSS scheme and get much better block lengththan the Verheul-Van Tilborg scheme.
