Steganography is the technique of avoiding detection by encasing secret information within a standard, non-secret file or message. The secret data is then extracted once it reaches its final destination. Encryption and steganography can be combined to further conceal or safeguard data. The Greek words steganos, which mean covered up or covered, and chart, which means to compose, are what gave rise to the term steganography. Steganography is a method for concealing virtually any digital content, including audio, video, text, and images, to hide the data that needs to be hidd en, any other kind of digital content can be used.


Prior to being integrated into the innocuous looking cover text document or information stream, the substance that is being disguised through steganography known as covered up text is habitually scrambled. On the off chance that the text isn’t encoded, it is every now and again handled here and there to make it harder to see as the mystery content. Steganography software conceals data in a variety of ways, including encrypting the data to be hidden, tracking which cover text file bits contain hidden data, and extracting hidden data by its intended recipient. Steganography can be performed with restrictive, open-source, and other free applications. The open-source steganography program OpenStego is free the kinds of information that can be hidden and the kinds of records that that information can be hidden in can both describe different projects. A type of online steganography software called Xiao Steganography is used to conceal secret files in BMP or WAV files. Image Steganography, a JavaScript application that encases images within other image files, what’s more, Crypture, and a steganography-related order line application. Steganography outperforms cryptography as a whole because the intended secret message is kept secret. Encrypted messages still pique curiosity and have the potential to be used as evidence in nations where encryption is illegal. Cryptography only protects the message’s contents, whereas steganography aims to conceal both the message’s content and the fact that it is being sent. Steganography is the act of concealing information in PC records. In digital steganography, electronic communications may include stenographic coding within a transport layer, such as a document, image, program, or protocol. Media files are ideal for stenographic transmission due to their large size. A shipper may, for example, begin with an innocuous picture record and change the shade of each and every 100th pixel to match a letter in the letters in order. It is unlikely that anyone who is not specifically looking for the change will notice it because the change is so subtle. Steganography is the art of hiding information in another message or physical object so that it can’t be found. Steganography can be used to cover up virtually any type of computer-generated content, including text, images, videos, and audio.


At its objective, that restricted information is then separated. Steganography is the process of hiding sensitive information in a common, non-secret document or message so that it can’t be found. The sensitive data will then be extracted from a standard file or message at its destination to avoid detection. In addition to encryption, steganography can be used to conceal or safeguard data.
