Now-a-days sharing the information over internet is becoming a critical issue due to security problems. Hence more techniques are needed to protect the shared data in an unsecured channel. The present work focus on combination of cryptography and steganography to secure the data while transmitting in the network. Firstly the data which is to be transmitted from sender to receiver in the network must be encrypted using the encrypted algorithm in cryptography. Secondly the encrypted data must be hidden in an image or video or an audio file with help of steganographic algorithm. Thirdly by using decryption technique the receiver can view the original data from the hidden image or video or audio file.
