A Detail Survey on Image Steganography Techniques and Applications

Vandana Rajput, Sandeep Kumar Tiwari, Pankaj Sharma


Steganography is working to achieve its significance owing to the growth and underground communication of possible computer operators on the internet. It may be distinct like the knowledge of unnoticeable communication that usually agreements with the methods of concealed occurrence of the interconnected message. The concealed information can be text, image, sound file, movie file, etc. In image steganography, undisclosed communication is attained to insert a message into protected image and produce a stegoimage (generated image which is carrying a hidden message). In this article, we show a study on steganography with its applications, types and techniques; and review of the existing work in steganography.
