With recent advances in Internet computing and its growing importance in the people's day-to-day life, the need for confidential communication has increased. The falling of sensitive and confidential data such as top intelligence secrets into an enemy nation's hands can lead to the misuse of technology and destruction of masses. Therefore, researchers have developed techniques such as cryptography and steganography to protect the data being transmitted. Cryptography uses mathematical algorithms to convert the data into an unreadable form and steganography on the other hand hides the data in a carrier such as image, data, audio or video.
