Cryptography, LSB, Steganographic, Vernam Encryption


Data security is one of the most important aspects of today's information era. Some methods are used to secure important data from hackers. The LSB is a steganographic algorithm that is often used to store data in the last bit. In order to improve the security, we combine steganography with cryptography enables. In this research LSB is modified using the multi-bit LSB model. Modifications are made to the bits of each character, the rotation by a certain amount can randomize the plaintext content before cryptographic algorithm, Vernam is performed. The bit on LSB can be inserted data as much as 1, 2, 3 or 4 - bit information. The calculation results of MSE and PSNR values indicate that the use of 1-bit LSB is superior to that of 2-, 3-, or 4-bit LSB.
