Introduction to Steganography



Welcome to Module 13 of the Computer Hacking and Forensics course, Steganography. This Steganography module introduces you to digital media and hiding messages (“stegoed”) within a variety of different media or any object.

You’ll learn what a “principled based approach is, how messages are created to hide in an object and how Steganography differs from Cryptology for revealing what there vs. what’s been deliberately hidden.

You’ll also learn the difference applications of Steganography, for example for Authentication and how a stegoed message would work.

We’ll discuss various attack techniques, classification and what those categories entail tools for performing analysis on an algorithm, or digital watermark or whatever has been “stegoed” within a given object.
