Message Segmentation to Enhance the Security of LSB Image Steganography
D. Al-Husainy. International Journal of Advanced Computer Science and Applications(IJACSA)(2012)
Classic Least Significant Bit (LSB) steganography technique is the most used technique to hide secret information in the least significant bit of the pixels in the stego-image. This paper proposed a technique by splitting the secret message into set of segments, that have same length (number of characters), and find the best LSBs of pixels in the stego-image that are matched to each segment. The main goal of this technique is to minimize the number of LSBs that are changed when substituting them with the bits of characters in the secret message. This will lead to decrease the distortion (noise) that is occurred in the pixels of the stego-image and as result increase the immunity of the stego-image against the visual attack. The experiment shows that the proposed technique gives good enhancement to the Classic Least Significant Bit (LSB) technique.
