Data Privacy System Using Steganography and Cryptography
Full Text (PDF, 798KB), PP.37-45
Data privacy is being breached occasionally whether in storage or in transmission. This is due to the spate of attack occasioned by the movement of data and information on an insecure internet. This study aimed to design a system that would be used by both sender and receiver of a secret message. The system used the combination of Steganography (MSB) and Cryptography (RSA) approaches to ensure data privacy protection. The system generates two keys: public and private keys, for the sender and receiver to encrypt and decrypt the message respectively. The steganography method used does not affect the size of cover image. The software was designed using python programming language in PyCharmIDE. The designed system enhanced the security and privacy of data. The results of this study reveal the effectiveness of combination of steganography and cryptography over the use of either cryptography or steganography and other existing systems.
