Text Hiding in AVI Video


Steganography comes from the Greek word "steganos", roughly translated to “Covered Writing”. Steganographic techniques allow one party to communicate information to another without a third party even knowing that the communication is occurring. The ways to deliver these “secret messages” is important. This paper is intended to introduce the hiding text (data) inside video as a means to communicate secret messages in away that they will not be read but by the desired person. The methods that used to hide text are the 4 Least Significant Bits (4-LSB) and Discrete Wavelet Transform (DWT), which will be hided in one color of video frames (i.e. red color).
