A New Approach for Image Steganography Using Edge Detection Method for Hiding Text in Color Images Using HSI Color Model

Authors(2) :-Vandana Yadav, Sanjay Kumar Sharma

The objective of the present project is to uses a new techniques for steganography in a HSI color cover images, which hides secret message in the edges of the carrier images using 2-bit LSB substitution for embedding. To get true edges, canny edge detection technique has been used. Amount of data to be embedded plays an important role on the selection of edges. The main advantage of using HIS color mode is that it produces a image with a significantly larg file size hence we hide large amount of secrete message Experimental results have shown that the proposed technique performs better and higher embedding capacity.
