The study's ultimate goal is to develop an Android app dedicated to Image Steganography, a technique for concealing sensitive information behind seemingly innocuous photographs. This information hiding technique is essential because of its many potential uses. Symmetric encryption, asymmetric encryption, and steganography are all brought together in this method. The initial picture is encrypted using a symmetric technique in this procedure. After that, the encrypted picture is quietly placed using a least significant bits Steganographic approach to conceal the secret key that was encrypted using an asymmetric algorithm. The steganography algorithm's simple but effective security mechanism is a major benefit. Integrating a secret message into a seemingly benign source makes it very difficult to detect the hidden message without prior knowledge of its existence and the appropriate decryption algorithm. The privacy of the concealed data is protected by this feature. The planned Android app would provide a user-friendly interface for using picture steganography methods, making it simple for anybody to choose commonplace photos and secret messages for obfuscation. Both the original picture and the concealed message will be kept secret thanks to the app's robust encryption methods. The hidden message will be seamlessly included into the regular picture using advanced steganographic methods like the least significant bits approach. The creation of this software is motivated by a desire to provide an easily accessible solution for people who want safe communication through hidden messages or encrypted photos. The robust encryption and steganographic technologies, paired with the straightforward interface, will enable users to effectively protect sensitive information. This work will strengthen the area of data security and highlight the need of sophisticated encryption and steganography in modern digital communication.
