Abstract

Steganography is a modern approach to protect classified data against malicious attacks and misuse. Presented, accordingly, in this paper is a novel method for steganographic embedding of information. A template matrix is used for screening the original message embedded in an image. The efficiency of the steganographic embedding depends on the length of the message. The particular dependency is, therefore, the primary focus of the proposed work. The end results of the experiment were extremely satisfactory with the percentage of successfully retrieved messages being more than 90%, and the size of the processed images with embedded messages being fully acceptable and capable of being used in a communication environment.
