Least Significant Bit but Quantum Bit: A Quasi Stego
John Bosco Balaguru Rayappan
Security has become the most indispensible part of any form
of communication. There are different ways through which it is brought about,
out of which one of the efficient implementation through steganography and encryption.
Steganography conceals the existence of a secret message throughout the communication
thereby providing enhanced security. In this study, a methodology has been proposed
to perform encryption on an image with the help of Secret Steganography Code
for Embedding (SSCE) code. A mapping technique has been proposed to combine
quantum truth table and LSB based embedding. The SSCE has been employed to provide
encryption, followed by quantum table before embedding the secret data. The
proposed methodology supports both images and text as cover as well as secret
data. In the proposed scheme, embedding has been included with encryption to
provide security multifold. The implementation was carried out using Visual
Basic. NET and results are presented.
