Visual Cryptography and Image Processing Based Approach for Bank Security Applications

Authentication is a critical step in initializing a bank transaction. Core banking and net banking systems use ID cards, passwords/PIN, OTP, etc. for authentication. However, these methods are still prone to forgery and hacking, due to which unauthorized person could gain access to user’s account. We propose a methodology which uses an image share as authentication key. This has been created using visual cryptography and other image processing techniques to encrypt authentication parameters. It is encrypted such that the share becomes incomprehensible to human eyes and non-decryptable by hacker, thus protecting the data from forgery or hacking. This paper proposes a double authentication system where user is identified by decrypted image and PSNR value. Hence this system provides a very high level of security.
