A Symmetric Key Algorithm for Cryptography using Music

  title={A Symmetric Key Algorithm for Cryptography using Music},
  author={Sandip Dutta and C. Sasi Kumar and Soubhik Chakraborty},
Music and its attributes have been used in cryptography from early days. Today music is vastly used in information hiding with the use of Steganography techniques. This paper proposes an alternative to steganography by designing an algorithm for the encryption of text message into music and its attributes. The proposed algorithm converts the plain text message into a musical piece by replacing the text characters of the message by mathematically generated musical notes. The sequence of musical… CONTINUE READING
