Information Hiding in Color Image based on LSB and FA

Abstract

In this research was to hide information in color images of the type of Joint Photographic Experts Group (JPEG) using hiding technique Least Significant Bit (LSB) with Firefly algorithm. The selection of appropriate image cells for hiding by using Firefly algorithm, then hide one bit of the secret message in least significant bit of all eight block of selected cells . Reached the Peak Signal to Noise Ratio (PSNR) to (78.0892) and the value of the Mean Square Error (MSE) approximately (0.0010), as well as the value of the Bit Error Rate (BER), which was (0).
