In modern information and communication systems, information security is becoming an increasingly important issue due to the threats from all different types of attacks. The network security is becoming more important as the number of data being exchanged on the Internet increases. Therefore, the confidentiality and integrity of data requires protection against unauthorized access and use. This reality is the base for the study conducted in this paper regarding the field of Digital Steganography, in order to provide solutions for confidential communication between computers and mobile devices. The authors propose a new solution in order to provide confidentiality and secrecy of digital data that is transferred through todays available platforms for communication. The study is based on the SmartSteg application and consists of a package of steganographic and cryptographic applications that works both ways on Android and Windows platform.
