To achieve high security, steganography process is combined with cryptographic encryption decryption algorithm such that if any one detect the presence of secret information still it is not understandable. Also there are many encryption/ decryption and steganography algorithm but there is always a competition to develop such an algorithm which is not only fast but also secure too. The proposed architecture first encrypts the secret text with proposed encryption algorithm and then hides it behind another text file through steganography algorithm.
