An Approach to Hide Information Using Wavelet Based Method

Authors(3) :-Tanusree Podder, Purbani Kar, Lalita Kumari

Steganography is a way of invisible communication through a cover media so as not to look suspicion on an eavesdropper’s eyes. It is a way to provide security with the help of multimedia object.The characteristics of a steganographic method is describable using it’s imperceptibility towards counter measure(attacks).A high level secure steganographic method is proposed in Discrete Wavelet Domain to hide secret image with accepted level of distortion.Visual difference between the cover and stego object is null.To demonstrate the performance of the algorithm experimental results have been shown using PSNR and MSE.
