Steganography is a useful tool that allows the users to covert transmission of information using certain means or a communications channel. Combining the channel with the encryption methods of substitution is similar to the age old method of cryptography, steganography enables the user to transmit information masked inside a file in plain view. The hidden data is both difficult to detect and when combined with known encryption algorithms, equally difficult to decipher. Steganography is the art of hiding information and an effort to conceal the existence of the embedded information.
