In today's information age, information sharing and transfer has increased exponentially. The information vulnerable to unauthorised access and interception, while in storage or transmission. Cryptography and Steganography are the two major techniques for secret communication. The contents of secret message are scrambled in cryptography, where as in steganography the secret message is embedded into the cover medium. This paper presents a new generalized model by combining cryptographic and steganographic Technique. These two techniques encrypt the data as well as hide the encrypted data in another medium so the fact that a message being sent is concealed.
