  • Abstract

    In order to improve the security of steganography system, we use fractal images as it has tremendous properties, such as ease of generation, sensitive dependence on their initial conditions,self-similarity and details at every scale. Information is embedded during creating fractal images by secret information. The receiver can extract the secret information by comparing the difference between Stego-Images and Cover- Images recovered with the same initial parameters. The attackers can't recover the Cover-Images without the initial parameters.The simulation results shows the imperceptibility and undetectability of the proposed algorithm.The value of PSNReachedup to46, and the value of MSE is vary between the range 0.04 to 3, as well as the value of NCreached up to0.9974and the scale (RGB Histogram) shows very minor difference.
