In this paper, a method is proposed to construct an n-out-of-n visual secret sharing scheme for gray-scale images, for short an (n,n)-VSS-GS scheme, which is optimal in the sense of contrast and pixel expansion, i.e., resolution. It is shown that any (n,n)-VSS-GS scheme can be constructed based on the so-called polynomial representation of basis matrices treated in ,. Furthermore, it is proved that such construction can attain the optimal (n,n)-VSS-GS scheme.
