Project Title: A Steganographic Application Using Audio Files
Semester: 3 2009
Committe Chair: Dr Dulal Kar
Committee Member 1: Dr Longzhuang Li
Committee Member 2: Dr Ajay Katangur
Project Description: Steganography is a form of science that deals with cryptic information. It is the art of writing in cryptic text that is unrecognizable to a person who doesn’t hold the key to decrypt it. Steganography is not a new form of science. In fact, Steganography is derived from the Greek word “steganos”, which means hidden or secret and “graphy” means writing or drawing. Thus steganography means secret writing. In contemporary terms, steganography has evolved into a digital strategy of hiding a file in any form of multimedia such as an image, an audio file or even a video file. This steganographic application “SteganoSense” works as a tool for hiding messages such as text, or image files in a wave file. The difference in SteganoSense tool and earlier tools is that the emphasis was more on security, lossless data compression and much more robustness. This work emphasizes various techniques by which steganography in audio can be implemented. SteganoSense offers more security with the use of Advanced Encryption Standard algorithm.
