Abstract

In the modern day of technology world, it is crucial to have a secure communication system. Over the past few years, there have been numerous amounts of data breaches, data leaks, intrusion in communication etc been reported to the authorities. This is due to insufficient security measures while the data is being transmitted. In this paper we will be looking at how we can use Cryptography and Steganography together to secure secret messages. Cryptography is the field of encrypting a human readable text into an unreadable gibberish form making it impossible for the intruder to read the plain text. Steganography on the other hand is the field of embedding a secret information into digital resources such as image, audio, or video making the plain text invisible. In this research A forceful combination of enhanced Blowfish algorithm along with Image Steganography using the Pixel Indicator technique have been brought together to improve data security and protect against brute force attacks, man in the middle attacks and data breaches.
