STEGANOGRAPHY SOFTWARE

Welcome to the Steganography Software for JJTC.Com
Steganography applications conceal information in other, seemingly innocent media. Steganographic results may masquerade as other file for data types,
be concealed within various media, or even hidden in network traffic or disk space. We are only limited by our imagination in the many ways information
and data can be exploited to conceal additional information.

Over the years I've been asked to add steganography and related application to my website, in the tool matrix, or steganography list. For the most part
my steganography pages have been a way to disseminate information about my research and interests.

The following provides a list of stegangraphy and related products. If URLs are provided to access the software, please provide the URL to the developers'
sites rather than to binaries for download. As tools are added, let's try to keep them in alphabetical order. Websites come and go. Try to verify valid URLs
prior to posting them as locations for more information.

NOTICE: Some of the programs listed here contain strong encryption components, and the export of them from the US is restricted by the EAR
regulations. In order to avoid violating these restrictions, the application are NOT hosted on this site. Binaries are not linked from this page - please refrain
from linking directly to binary files for download when adding new tools.

But there are alternatives. And then you need to Bitshift your data in some kind of a loop to examine it.Did a little research. Skills covered in this assignment: Here are some of the skills you will need to learn in order to complete this assignment: • Loading and saving bitmap files. Ofcourse. Steganography works by changing a few pixel color values. Do a google search. In this assignment you will be writing a java application that will enable you to exchange secret messages with another person. • Bit manipulation operations. We can then send the image to a buddy and they can extract the message if they know which pixels to decode. most people probably couldn’t tell that you had changed the image at all. If you were to change a few of these color numbers the resulting picture would probably look a lot like the original image. Unfortunately. VB6 does not have a bitshift operator. the resulting image will still look mostly like the original except that a few tiny ”blips” might seem a little out of place if you look very closely. Think of all those pixels in an image and each pixel has three color numbers — there are zillions of numbers in an image. in fact. Bitshift VB6 cs171. But I believe what you need to do is to deal with your file as a Binary File. we will use selected pixel values to represent characters instead of a color value. Introduction to Programming Final Project: Steganography Application 200 points Overview: People use cryptography to send secret messages to one another without a third party overseeing the message. Requirements . These couple words should give you some good examples. Steganography is a type of cryptography in which the secret message is hidden in a digital picture.

You can give it the same name except be sure to put a .bmp on the class web page. > Picture p = new Picture(FileChooser. You will not be submitting a Picture.pickSaveFile()).bmp file extension on the end. Bitmap Files • First you will need to read your picture as a jpg and then save it in 24-bit bmp format. > p = p.halve(). • Your project is to work with the standard (original) Picture. All your code will be in this file. (For example. I will use my copy to run your program. This is what you will submit on email.• Project is to be submitted on email by 11:30am on Monday. make sure your own program can decode the response you put in this picture. Of course. Encoded in this file is a question.java. You shouldn’t need any changes to this class in order to make your project work.jpg” and then saved ”Matt. 1• You are to create an application called Steganography. May 1. You are to copy this bmp file in your file on the shared drive (before 11:30am. Instead. Then submit back to me your response encoded in a different bmp picture. > p.java class.java file. May 1). Answer the question (in 255 chars or less). .pickAFile()). You will need to use bmp files for this assignment because jpg’s are ”lossy” meaning that what you write to the file may be changed slightly so that the resulting image can be stored more efficiently. I loaded ”Matt.saveBMP(FileChooser. Here are the commands to save your file. Use your program to decode the message. Thus jpg will not work for steganography because jpgs will change the secret message when storing the file to disk. that way you can be sure that my program can decode the response too.bmp”). • There is a file Secret.halve().

You will run in to less trouble if your image is smaller (say 100x100 or less). You will limit yourself to messages that are between 0 and 255 . prompt the user for an input message. Print the message. • If encode. • If decode. • See the BitExample. Encode the message into the picture (details below).java example to see how to use these different operations. Encoding/Decoding Method • You can extract the pixels of your target picture in one big array using the textttgetPixels() method. You can probably guess how this works. • Note that I reduced my image to 1 4 original size because bmp files take a lot of memory. extract the message from the file.• There is also a loadBMP method. Save the new picture/message in this file (using bmp format). and shift. or. • Use the FileChooser dialog to prompt the user for an input file. You will need all three. • Use the first pixel (at spot 0) to hide the length of your message (number of characters). Then use the FileChooser dialog to prompt the user for an output file. Bit Manipulation 2• You will need to be able to manipulate the bits stored in numbers. Interaction • Prompt the user if they want to encode or decode a message. There are three basic bit manipulation operations: and.

it is possible that we are changing the redness of that pixel by quite a bit. You can typecast all the unicode chars to bytes as well. we might have had a pixel with values of (225. Start at pixel 11. The length (in the first pixel) is a byte. This will make subtle changes to each pixel’s color and will not be as evident. • Use the method below to hide each byte in an appropriate pixel. then pixel 22. 100. is that these often cause quite visible changes in the resulting image. • Every thing that you need to hide in a pixel is 8-bits long. and so on until you hide all characters in your message. This dark grey is noticeably different than the dark pink we had before. Each byte has 8 bits to encode a number between 0 and 255. When we swap out the red color byte for a character. For example. Remember that each pixel has three bytes: one byte for red. This is especially true if the pixels that are being changed are part of a large section of uniformly colored pixels – the ”dots” stand out and are noticeable.characters long. As an option. 3Hiding Method The problem with changing the red values in our encode/decode steps. 100) which has lots of red. it will definitely stand out in the image especially if the other nearby pixels are all dark pink. and green). Now we have equal parts of all three colors to produce a dark grey pixel. blue and green colors. We want a way to encode our message without making such drastic changes to . 100. • After that use every eleventh pixel to hide characters in your message. Now suppose we are to store the character ”a” in the red part of this pixel. 100). we can change only the lower order bits of each pixel color (red. some green and some blue – this is basically a reddish pixel with a slight bit of pink color to it. An ”a” is encoded as decimal number 97 so our new pixel becomes (97. blue.

100). you will need to be handy with the ”logical and” and ”logical or” operators and also the ”shifting” operator. For example. 100. 01100100. If we had done this to the example of pixel (225. we obtain: original pixel = ( 11100001. the ”twos place” and the ”fours place”. g7 g6 g5 g4 g3 g2 g1 g0.the colors in the original image. Let us think of our original pixel as a bits: (r7 r6 r5 r4 r3 r2 r1 r0. 96. you simply extract the appropriate pixels from the rgb values to reconstruct the secret character. Then we can place three of these character bits in the lowest red pixel. 101) is almost the same value as the old pixel of (225. If we only change the lowest bits of each pixel. and the last two in the lowest blue pixel as follows: 4(r7 r6 r5 r4 r3 c7 c6 c5. 101 ) Notice the new pixel of (227. And our character (byte) as some bits: c7 c6 c5 c4 c3 c2 c1 c0. b7 b6 b5 b4 b3 b2 c1 c0). Obtain a java reference book to research these operations. 100. We can only alter the original pixel color value by ±7. Java command line. then the numeric values can only change by a small percentage. 01100000. To accomplish this. b7 b6 b5 b4 b3 b2 b1 b0). suppose we only change the last three bits (lowest three bits) – these are the bits that determine the ”ones place”. 01100100 ) ”a” = 01100001 new pixel = ( 11100011. 01100101 ) new pixel = ( 227. three more in the lowest green pixel. 100) with character ”a”. 96. 5 . You might want to test them out on a small program first or on the Dr. g7 g6 g5 g4 g3 c4 c3 c2. There will be no noticeable color difference in the image! To retrieve the message.

We can then send the image to a buddy and they can extract the message if they know which pixels to decode. Ofcourse.

Different applications may require absolute invisibility of the secret information. It also attempts to ide requirements of a good steganography algorithm and briefly reflects on which steganographic techniques are more suitable for which applications. application gives the screen to select only im and ask path where user want to save the secrete file. This project has two methods – Encrypt and Decrypt. The difference between two is that steganography involves hiding information so it appears that no information is hidden person or persons views the object that the information is hidden inside of he or she will have no idea that there is any hidden inform therefore the person will not attempt to decrypt the information.
