Nowadays, centralized storage has to be implemented in each and every organization to make their data available from anywhere through a cloud environment. The accessibility of data can be varied for public and private clouds. The main reason behind the centralization is the legitimate users can able to make utilization of data stored. Here the visual images can also be stored and shared with the members and non-members of the cloud environment. It is to make secure storage and transmission of image data with the visual secret sharing techniques. However, the existing techniques provide more security over the data sharing through the VSS techniques, sometimes it is vulnerable to threats and attacks, and the main reason is the need to make this transmission without degrading the quality of visual images. Here a novel pixel shuffling and amalgamation scheme has been developed and utilized for visual secret sharing with meaningful shares in the cloud environment. It can able to make secret visual images with high throughput and highly secure with the protection of threats while sharing with cloud members. The experimental results show that the novel algorithm can give high performance and accuracy with the security mechanisms.
