A Novel Approach for Data Hiding by integrating Steganography & Extended Visual Cryptography
In this paper, the authors propose a novel approach for transmitting secret data securely by integrating steganographic method & visual cryptography. Steganography is the art & science of hiding data in the images. In the older age, their ancestors had also used the steganography. For e.g. they use invisible ink, tattooing etc. for hiding secret information. In the digital age, secret data is hidden within the image, file, audio, video, text etc. Cryptography is the art & science of converting plain text or data into an unreadable form which is called as cipher text.
