Final Report 29 July 2013 07:51

The field of digital steganography centres on hiding information in digital file formats. Whilst the application of steganographic techniques in relation to image and audio files has been extensively researched, research into the use of other container files remains limited.

The aim of this project is to explore different methods for securely encoding messages in a multimedia container, utilising both the audio and video stream, and using steganalysis to determine their effectiveness.
