In today's world maintaining the secrecy of information is of prime concern. Moreover it is sometimes not enough to keep the contents of the message secret but it may also be important to keep the mere existence of the message itself a secret. Earlier Cryptography was the technique which was used for securing crucial information which used 'Scrambling' process i.e., the message was scrambled, so when tapped the message would not make any sense. But now, steganography is being used as the technique for data hiding which uses a unique technique of making the message itself seem 'Invisible' and thus it provides better protection for the secret data.
