Review of Comparative Evaluation: Image Steganography

Authors(1) :-Anjani Kumar

The main aim of this paper is to develop some algorithms for hiding the information in digital image that will not be predictable by the attacker except the recipients. Here, we have studied here two methods of spatial domain steganography and frequency domain steganography each and then hides the information to produce stego­image having property of robustness to visual and statistical attacks. Finally, comparisons are shown between the signals for the detection features.
