An anti-noise bidirectional quantum steganography protocol with large payload protocol is proposed in this paper. In the new protocol, Alice and Bob enable to transmit classical information bits to each other while teleporting secret quantum states covertly. The new protocol introduces the bidirectional quantum remote state preparation into the bidirectional quantum secure communication, not only to expand secret information from classical bits to quantum state, but also extract the phase and amplitude values of secret quantum state for greatly enlarging the capacity of secret information. The new protocol can also achieve better imperceptibility, since the eavesdropper can hardly detect the hidden channel or even obtain effective secret quantum states. Comparing with the previous quantum steganography achievements, due to its unique bidirectional quantum steganography, the new protocol can obtain higher transmission efficiency and better availability. Furthermore, the new algorithm can effectively resist quantum noises through theoretical analysis. Finally, the performance analysis proves the conclusion that the new protocol not only has good imperceptibility, high security, but also large payload.
