Hiding a Large Amount of Data with High Security Using Steganography Algorithm

Nameer N. EL-Emam


This study deals with constructing and implementing new algorithm based on hiding a large amount of data (image, audio, text) file into color BMP image. We have been used adaptive image filtering and adaptive image segmentation with bits replacement on the appropriate pixels. These pixels are selected randomly rather than sequentially by using new concept defined by main cases with their sub cases for each byte in one pixel. This concept based on both visual and statistical. According to the steps of design, we have been concluded 16 main cases with their sub cases that cover all aspects of the input data into color bitmap image. High security layers have been proposed through three layers to make it difficult to break through the encryption of the input data and confuse steganalysis too. Our results against statistical and visual attacks are discussed and make comparison with the previous Steganography algorithms like S-Tools. We show that our algorithm can embed efficiently a large amount of data that has been reached to 75% of the image size with high quality of the output.
