Image Steganography using Arduino Microcontroller

Hristo Paraskevov, Aleksandar Stefanov, Radostin Rafailov


This paper aims to investigate and develop an algorithm, based on the LSB method, for steganographic message hiding using a single-board Arduino microcontroller, with sequential scheme to embed the hidden message. It has been experimentally found that the changes that the algorithm makes to the carrier file are within normal limits and that the incompleteness is at a good level.
