An Efficient Sequential Data Embedded Image Steganographic Approach

Authors(2) :-P. Jothimani, A. Nagarajan

Steganography, the art of hiding the data from human perception. The usages have been increased more in the present decade. Many techniques and algorithms were evolved to improvise the process. It concerns more about the secure transmission of the data in the communication spectrum. The data may be in any format such as the text, image, audio and even video files. Steganography more deeply uses the image as a medium to cover the original information. In the proposed method, uses the modified form of Least Significant Bit (LSB) insertion technique. The original text file is first converted into binary form. The cover image is converting regarding the input data’s corresponding pixel arrangement. The replacement takes place in such a way that, one pixel value will be modified and replaced in every block. As a result, the intruder cannot find out the changes taken place within the image. This method uses the LSB technique in a modified way with pixel replacement. The experimental results show that the proposed method remains secure and also, fast to process.
