This paper proposed a new construction of the visual secret sharing scheme for the (n, n)-threshold access structure applicable to color images. The construction uses matrices with n rows that can be identifield with homogeneous polynomials of degree n. It is shown that, if we find a set of homogeneous polynomials of degree n satisfying a certain system of simultaneous partial differential equations, we can construct a visual secret sharing scheme for the (n, n)-threshold access structure by using the matrices corresponding to the homogeneous polynomials. The construction is easily extended to the cases of the (t, n)-threshold access structure and more general access structures.
