Abstract: In this advanced world with the growing technology, the demand for security of information is needed in any communication streams of data which is being conveyance from host to intended host over the internet. Obviously, a huge & numerous amount of the data or the information are transferred in our everyday. So, the demand for securing information has become the main concern. Image Steganography is one of the important areas in the field of Steganography. The main purpose of steganography is to protect the surreptitious information from others except from intended receiver & by increasing the security of the covert data in the significant way that information can’t be revealed although the intruder knows the methodology of the embedding process. In this paper, The aim is to propose a different yet, an innovative steganographical technique which provides the security on our digital image, and by using a quality measuring technique like Mean Square Error(MSE), Peak Signal Noise Ratio (PSNR) which assure the quality of image has been not degraded even after infusing the covert data inside the image. So to overcome these issues, this paper, suggests a new method to maintain the quality of the image. After embedding the authenticated information in the cover image using Region-Based Least Significant Bit (LSB) technique that provides security of digital image.
Keywords: Steganography, Least Significant Bit (LSB), MSE, PSNR, Security.
