In the present study, we present a new steganography technique for hiding data in images using parity checker. This method uses the concept of odd and even parity for insertion and retrieval of message. This method is an improvement over earlier methods like least significant bit method and 6th, 7th bit method [1] for hiding information in images. Our method retains the advantages of above methods but discards the disadvantages of above methods and provides us the optimal results.
