Image steganography is the art of hiding information into a cover image. This paper presents a novel technique for Image steganography based on Block-DCT, where DCT is used to transform original image (cover image) blocks from spatial domain to frequency domain. Firstly a gray level image of size M × N is divided into no joint 8 × 8 blocks and a two(More)
Image steganography is the art of hiding information into a cover image. This paper presents a novel technique for Image steganography based on DWT, where DWT is used to transform original image (cover image) from spatial domain to frequency domain. Firstly two dimensional Discrete Wavelet Transform (2-D DWT) is performed on a gray level cover image of size(More)
This paper presents an image secret sharing method based on some random matrices that acts as a key for secret sharing. The technique allows a secret image to be divided into four image shares with each share individually looks meaningless. To reconstruct the secret image all four shares have to be used. Any subset m (1< m ≤ 4) shares cannot get sufficient(More)
In this paper, we propose a novel and simple (2, n) secret sharing scheme with precise reconstruction for grayscale, binary and color image. The share construction phase is based on pixel division and XOR operation. The reconstruction is based on XOR and OR operation. The proposed scheme has no pixel expansion and can reconstruct the secret image precisely.(More)
Steganography is the branch of information hiding for secret communication. The simplest and widely used steganography is the LSB based approach due to its visual quality with high embedding capacity. However, LSB based steganography techniques are not secure against statistical steganalysis mainly χ2 attack and Regular Singular (RS) attack. These two(More)
The emerging Internet Technology has led to the need of high level of security of data during its transmission. For this purpose steganography plays a major role in society. Steganography is basically the art of secretly hiding data or message in any cover medium such as an image, audio or video. Hence it allows secret communication to take place without(More)
