Abstract

Steganography is the art and science of secret communications. It is the practice of encoding/embedding secret information in a way such that the subsistence of the information is invisible. The original documents can be referred to as cover text, cover image, or cover audio. After inserting the secret message it is referred to as stego medium. The disadvantages of the system lie in the fact that once the applicability of the system is known, it can be simply attacked. So, it is urgent to keep the application of the method to a particular dataset, secret. We have several methods of audio steganography to embed the text message in cover audio file. The main job is to send the messages to receivers by hiding the existence of the message. Due to the security issues, A new Hybrid algorithm has been used which consists of both Indian root and Reflection symmetry method in order to reduce the data and increase the security, hence making the decoding process difficult. The Proposed Hybrid Algorithm was successful in increasing the security of the particular document as it made the decoding difficult. It was also helpful to make the limited articles or sentences safe which were consumed by Indian root method. It became difficult to identify the number of bits as the encoding was done by both the processes Indian root as well as Reflection symmetry method. It helped to increase the number of hidden sentences as the decoding process was tough. As a future work, this solution can be enhanced by increasing the embedding data capacity. The work is only limited to the text data, which can be further done with multimedia data also. Some advanced steganography methods can be used to enhance the encoding decoding process.
