The principal objective of this effort is to organize a network facility to hide the secret information in an image folder without disturbing its originality. In the literature lot of algorithms are there to hide the information in an image file but most of it consumes high resource for completing the task which is not suitable for light weight mobile devices. Few basic algorithms like 1LSB, 2LSB and 3LSB methods in the literature are suitable for mobile devices since the computational complexity is very low. But, these methods either lack in maintaining the originality of the source image or in increasing the number of bits to be fixed. Furthermore, every algorithm in the literature has its own merits and demerits and we cannot predict which algorithm is best or worst since, based on the parameters such as size of the safety duplicate and encryption algorithm used to generate the cipher text the steganography schemes may produce best or worst result with respect to computational complexity, capacity, and detectable distortion. In our proposed work, we have developed a web service that takes cover image and plain text as the input from the clients and returns the steganoimage to the clients. The steganoimage will be generated by our proposed work by analyzing the above said parameters and by applying the right steganography scheme. The proposed work helps in reducing the detectable distortion, computational complexity of the client device, and in increasing the capacity. The experimental result says that, the proposed system performs better than the legacy schemes with respect to capacity, computational complexity, and detectable distortion. This proposed work is more useful to the client devices with very low computational resource since all the computational tasks are deployed in the server side.
