Steganography is the art of hiding the secret and confidential data in other transmission medium in order to achieve secret communication. Steganography method used in this paper, is based on biometrics. The biometric feature used here is the skin tone region of images. In this method the authors embed the secret data into the skin region of images in order to provide a very good security. In order to implement this process initially they have to detect the skin area by means of HSV (Hue Saturation Value) color space and then they embed the data by following DWT (Discrete Wavelet Transform) approach in frequency domain.
