Image which has to be sent over the network or transferred using any electronic mode can be secured by the use of image steganography and stitching. There is a secret image and message that has to be sent over the network. The secret image is divided into two phases. The first phase is the Encryption phase, which deals with the process of transforming the plain text (actual secret message) into cipher text using the AES algorithm. The Second phase is the Embedding phase, which deals with the process of embedding the cipher text into any part of secret image that is to be sent. The third phase is the hiding phase, which deals with performing steganography on the output of Embedding Phase. Hiding Phase and Embedding Phase get decrypted at the receiving end. K-Nearest method is used to stitch the parts obtained.
