Conclusion Toward Hidden Communication

  • Abid Yahya


Steganography is the art and science of invisible communication. It has recently been the core of attention by the information-security community. This chapter is concerned with summarizing the conclusions that have been arrived at throughout conducting the present work. It further showcases some possible future research challenges that need to be studied in this area.
