Steganography is the science of hiding secret message inside another larger and harmless looking message. This is one notch above regular cryptography; which just obscures the original message. Steganography tries to conceal the fact that there is a message in the first place. Steganographic message often appears to be something else than the original (secret) message, like a picture, sound, larger text, etc. OpenStego is the free Steganography solution. It is a tool implemented in Java for generic steganography, with support for password-based encryption of data. It supports plugins for various steganographic algorithms.
