Steganography, Security, Digital information, LSB


This paper development of multimedia and internet allows for wide distribution of digital media data. It becomes easier to edit, modify and duplicate digital information. It is a big security and privacy issue, it become necessary to find appropriate protection because of the significance, accuracy and sensitivity of the
information. Steganography considers one of the techniques which used to protect the important information. The main goals for this paper to recognize the researchers for the main fundamentals of steganography. In this paper provides a general overview of steganography ,types, characterization of steganography techniques. The Least Significant Bit(LSB) is one of the main techniques in spatial domain image steganography. A new technique of LSB steganography has been proposed which is an improvised version of one bit LSB technique. This paper reviews the LSB algorithm used for image steganography to the security potential of steganography for business and personal use.
