Steganography is the art of hiding secrets in seemingly
harmless files to protect information. The point
of steganography is the fact that nobody will ever
try to look for the secret file that was created,
because “they” have no reason to believe that it
exists in the first place. The process of encrypting
data typically produces chunks of illegible scrambled
text, which can alert 3rd parties to the fact that
data is in fact encrypted. It is often vitally important
that business information remains invisible when
transmitted. But sending visibly scrambled and encrypted
messages can be detected easily.
this problem because it hides your sensitive information
within image files such as holiday picture. The
hidden files can be of any type and the number of
files hidden per image is not limited. The hidden
files have multiple layers of encryption and it
would not be practical for anyone to try and decrypt.
Also a visual attack cannot be applied. This software
can be used to store documents securely in one file.
It could also be used to identify ownership of an
image, by embedding a unique text file with owner
details within the image or the owners logo. In
fact giving the image a secret watermark or finger
print. The files are first compressed and stored
in a non-standard format. They then have two types
of Encryption applied to the file. Next the file
is encrypted again using a Unique password supplied
by the user and finally it is encrypted again with
a different key and merged with the image. The file
created will look like any other image file and
will be displayed as an image. When purchased the
cost covers two licenses for two computers.
