Indian scientists' new program lets you hide data in an executable file

Washington , Tue, 10 May 2011 ANI

Washington, May 10 (ANI): In this computer age, Steganography - a form of security through obscurity in which information is hidden within an unusual medium - has become more of a science than an art.


Now, people who intent on hiding information from prying eyes can embed data in the many different file types that are ostensibly music files (mp3), images (jpeg), video (mpeg4) or word-processing documents.


Computer scientists Rajesh Kumar Tiwari of the GLNA Institute of Technology, in Mathura and G. Sahoo of the Birla Institute of Technology, in Mesra, Ranchi, have developed an algorithm for embedding hidden data in an executable file.


The algorithm has been built into a program with graphical user interface that would take a conventional exe file and the data to be hidden as input and merge the two producing a viable exe file with a hidden payload.


The technology could be used on smart phones, tablet PCs, portable media players and any other information device on which a user might wish to hide data.


The detail of the discovery is published in the International Journal of Internet Technology and Secured Transactions. (ANI)
