Dual Stegnography Scheme for Secure Data Communication using Finite State

S. Srilakshmi


Steganography is the art or practice of concealing a message, image, or file within another message, image, or file. It combines the Greek words steganos (στεγανός), meaning "covered or protected", and graphei (γραφή) meaning "writing". The advantage of steganography over cryptography alone is that the intended secret message does not attract attention to itself as an object of scrutiny. Automata theory is the study of abstract computing devices or machines. In computer science we find many examples of finite state system and the theory of finite state systems, as a useful design tool for these systems. In the present paper an innovative technique for encrypting and hiding the data is proposed based on finite state machines. The efficacy of the proposed method is analyzed, and the analysis shows an improved cryptographic protection in digital signals.
