A visual secret sharing (VSS) scheme is intended to share secret information in a group to avoid potential treat of interruption and modification. In this paper, we present a novel VSS scheme based on the improved local binary pattern (LBP) operator. It makes full use of local contrast features of LBP for concealing secret image data into different image shares, which can be used to recover the secret easily and exactly. By varying LBP extensions, we can design various kinds of VSS schemes for sharing secret information. Compared to the currently available VSS algorithms, the proposed scheme demonstrates better randomness in shares with less pixel expansion and exact determination in reconstruction with lower computational cost.
