Text hiding in text using invisible character

Nada Abdul Aziz Mustafa


Steganography can be defined as the art and science of hiding information in the data that could be read by computer. This science cannot recognize stego-cover and the original one whether by eye or by computer when seeing the statistical samples. This paper presents a new method to hide text in text characters. The systematic method uses the structure of invisible character to hide and extract secret texts. The creation of secret message comprises four main stages such using the letter from the original message, selecting the suitable cover text, dividing the cover text into blocks, hiding the secret text using the invisible character and comparing the cover-text and stego-object. This study uses an invisible character (white space) position of in the cover text that used to hide the the secrete sender masseges. The experiments results show that the suggested method presents highly secret due to use the multi-level of complexity to avoid the attackers.
