Free Steganography Software Tools

With my interest in Compute forensics, I can’t help but be interested in Steganography Software Tools, which allow you to hide things in files, such as hiding a zip file at the end of a gif file. The article even gives you some valid reasons to use such a tool, although, most likely, they won’t be one you actually use.

Remember those invisible ink kits from when you were a kid? You’d write a secret message that no one could see unless they had a black light or the decoder marker. The digital equivalent of invisible ink is steganography software, apps that embed files and data inside other files, hidden from everyone who doesn’t know any better.

You don’t have to be a trained spy plotting international espionage to put steganography to good use. With some free tools for both the Mac and PC, you can embed secret information in image, PDF, HTML and MP3 files for fun or profit

  • You suspect someone’s illegally distributing your copyrighted PDF’s or images, so you add hidden copyright information in them using stego tools to double-check.
  • You want to exchange information like passwords or sensitive images over an insecure transmission protocol, like email.
  • You want to embed secret files available only to a select few in a public forum.
  • You want to impress your friends and co-workers with your sneaky ways
