Abstract

Various cryptographic methods are available for completing the objective of data security across the internet, servers, and local systems. But, there is a continuous requirement of more extra protection, which might not fit in cryptography and steganography. Hence, the vital combination of steganography along with cryptography methods can give an extra level of security. Quick Response (QR) codes are adopted widely due to their useful characteristics. QR Code involves robustness, readability, error correction capability, ample information space than old barcodes, etc. Thus, in our idea, we propose a four-layered design for securing the message distribution mechanism by using the QR code image. This design uses the practical and vital use of cryptography and steganography techniques. The offered method gives a higher level of protection based on results. In this paper, we assess our approach against the performance evaluation, securities as discussed in the article.
