GENERAL GUIDELINES FOR THE PREPARATION OF MINI PROJECT REPORT FOR B. TECH (CSE)

1.1. General instructions 1. Enough matter (text, figures etc) in a page; not mostly white space 2. First Para of a chapter briefly state what is done in the chapter; last Para of a chapter to gently lead to next chapter. 3. Give the equipment, hardware configuration details in appendix; so also company details to be given in an Appendix (if appropriate) 4. Figures should have captions and be numbered Eg.Fig.5.8 Variation of speed with load. 5. Figures equations, tables to be continuously numbered within a chapter Eg.Fig.4.1, Fig.4.2../Table 4.1, Table 4.2.. 6.

For chapter title, suitably large font size and bold and suitable font (Times New Roman). 8. If a figure or table in chapter 3 happen to be the fourth then assign 3.4 to that figure(eg.. Fig 3.4 Table 3.4) 9. All pages should be numbered continuously. 10. For figures, captions should be at the bottom of the figure, graphs, charts flow diagrams etc., 11. For tables, captions should be above the tabular column. 12. Tables and figures should confirm to the margin specifications. Large size figures should be reduced to the appropriate size before insertion. 13. No art paper for chapter titles. 14. Not more than 1.5 line spacing. 15. Margin: Left=1 ,Right= ,top=1, bottom=1 16.

CHAPTER 1 INTRODUCTION
Division heading : Subdivision heading : 1.3 ORGANISATION OF PROJECT REPORT

1.1.2 Literature review.

1.3 Writing the report/ Main Body of the report 1. The main body of the report should be organized into logical parts or sections that follow along in an orderly manner. 2. The body will usually occupy several chapters. It must include the literature review. 1.4 Number of copies of Report submission Total No. of copies = n+2; (i.e. n = no: of students in the batch department library = 1 Internal Guide=1 personal copy = 1) 1.5. Conclusion and future development There should be a separate chapter devoted to this. Considerations of the implications and meaning of the results. It should also contain suggestion for future work, or alternative approaches/forms of investigation, hindsight, might have lead to an improved investigation. This is often the weakest part of a dissertation. It must relate the findings of the work to previous work (from the literature review). Show to what extent you have gone beyond previous work, what contribution you have made and what are the limitations of your work. 1.6. Reference 1. Reference citations to papers should be in this order : i. Author Name(s), title of paper in double quotes, Name of Journals in Italics, Volume, Number, pages, month and year. 2. Reference to books should have these details : i. Name of Author(s), Title of book in Italics, Edition number, Publisher, year of publication. 3. See Appendix G for sample Reference page. 1.7.Order of items in report: I. II. III. IV. V. VI.

SYNOPSIS
Security has become an inseparable issue as information technology is ruling the world now. Cryptography is the study of mathematical techniques related aspects of Information Security such as confidentiality, data security, entity authentication and data origin authentication, but it is not the only means of providing information security, rather one of the techniques. Visual cryptography is a new technique which provides information security which uses simple algorithm unlike the complex, computationally intensive algorithms used in other techniques like traditional cryptography. This technique allows Visual information (pictures, text, etc) to be encrypted in such a way that their decryption can be performed by the human visual system, without any complex cryptographic algorithms. This technique represents the secret image by several different shares of binary images. It is hard to perceive any clues about a secret image from individual shares. The secret message is revealed when parts or all of these shares are aligned and stacked together. In this paper we provide an overview of the emerging Visual Cryptography (VC) and related work which is based on the recovering of secret image. A binary logo is used to represent the ownership of the host image and verifies the reliability of the reconstructed image. The logo is used to generate shadows by visual cryptography algorithms. An error correction-coding scheme is also used to create the appropriate shadow. The logo extracted from the half-toned host image identifies the cheating types. Furthermore, the logo recovers the reconstructed image when shadow is being cheated.
