In this paper, the authors present an approach for encrypting visual cryptographically generated image shares using RSA algorithm. The visual cryptography scheme is a secure method that encrypts a secret document or image by breaking it into shares. A distinctive property of visual cryptography scheme is that one can visually decode the secret image by superimposing shares without computation. By taking the advantage of this property, third person can easily retrieve the secret image if shares are passing in sequence over the network.
