As the information age progresses and data becomes more and more valuable, methods need to be discovered to protect and secure sensitive data. An original type of security has appeared, different from most types of cryptography in several ways. Steganography is a method of securing data by obscuring the context in which it is transferred. This paper will discuss the applications of steganography including hiding data within: text, mpeg layer three and images. The bulk of the document will talk about how it is used and a basic algorithm I developed for implementing steganography within bitmap images.
