Paper Abstract

Steganography is an art of hiding secret information by embedding it in a medium like an image, thus it secures the information from unauthorized access of confidential information. This paper presents an image steganography technique using a Novel Puzzle. The solution of the puzzle is expanded and used as the reference matrix in determining the embedding location of the secret message in the cover image. Experimental results show that the resemblance between the stego-images and cover images is high. Having an average PSNR value of 48.64db and average SSIM value of 0.99965 the chances that the stego image will be recognized with the use of Human Visual System (HVS) is small. The proposed technique is robust against Salt and Pepper Noise attack with the simulation result of 95.87% accuracy.
