DATA HIDING SECURITY USING BIT MATCHING-BASED STEGANOGRAPHY AND CRYPTOGRAPHY WITHOUT CHANGE THE STEGO IMAGE QUALITY

This research discussed about the data hiding information using steganography and cryptography. New method are discussed to secure data without change the quality of image as cover medium. Steganographic method is used by find the similarity bit of the message with bit of the MSB (Most Significant Bit) image cover. Finding of similarity process is done by divide and conquer method.The results are bit indexposition, thenthenencrypted using cryptographic. In this paper we using DES (Data Encryption Standard) algorithm. We use data information as message, images, and key as an input. Then, we use our method to secure message. The output is encrypted bit index which containt data hiding information and can be used to secure the messages. To reconstruct the contents, we require the same image and same key. Outcomes of our method can be used to secure the data. The advantages of this method are the capacity of stored data hiding of messages can be larger than the image. The image quality will not change and the capacity of stored messages can be larger than the image. Acoording to the research, both gray scale and colorful images can be used as image cover, except the image contains 100% black and 100% white. Bit matching process on image which have much variety of color takes less time. The damage of messages due to the addition of “salt and pepper” noise starts from 0.00049of MSE.
