What is Steganography?
Steganography is a way or lets say technique of encoding hidden messages in such a way that no one, apart from the sender and intended recipient, suspects the existence of the message.
In this post,I have presented the software name Our Secret, which hide your private data in the other file.
Data transmissions are vital,important and have became a necessity nowadays. Whether you share your private messages with your close friends, or business/commercial secrets with your partners, you must protect your confidential information from hackers,from various social networking sites like facebook.com,google.com,twitter.com,gmail.com,hotmail.com,etc, your boss, or your competitors. But,we are living in an insecure world where unwanted persons can access our personal information (like e-mails or personal documents) and often use it against us.
OurSecret is a special software which enables you to hide and encrypt files within other files (called carrier files) such as pictures or sound files.This allows you to encrypt sensitive information,while at the same time hiding it in a file that will not look suspicious,so no-one ever knows that there is any encrypted information.The carrier files are fully functional and identical to the original files (except for the size), so if the message was hidden in a picture file,the picture can still be viewed normally.The program gives you options to hide a text message,or any files that you want.You can specify a password to extract the hidden files.
Steps To Hide Data:
- Download and install the OurScerets-Steganography Tool.
- Open the OurScerets-Steganography Tool and click on folder image right next to select the carrier file below the HIDE section.
- A new small window will open,browse to your carrier file and select it and click on ok.
- Then click on "ADD",a new window will open asking you whether you want to hide text message or any other file,select the desired option .
- Once you have selected the data you want to hide,next step is to password protect it so no one can access it,enter password in the password field and click on "HIDE" button.
- Voila,your data is hided.
Steps to un-hide data:
- Open the OurScerets-Steganography Tool and click on folder image right next to select carrier file in UNHIDE section.
- A new window will open,browse and locate your carrier file in which your data is present.
- Enter the password which was used during the encryption of data and then click on "UNHIDE" button.
- Voila,your data will be unhided wihtout any loss.
