One of the ways to maintain the security of data transfer over
the network is to encrypt the data before sending it, for the
purpose of increasing data privacy and its importance.
Steganography, is used to hide encrypted data in various
documents, the art of concealment is embedded Secret
Messages (SM) to be passed confidentially within a file
without influence on the properties of the file and this can t
be anyone s hand is to know that there is confidential data
encapsulated by transport data.
Previous research used the Excel file to hide data in different
ways, but the data masking and packaging by changing the
color content writing is what distinguishes our research and
make it alone in this area.
The Microsoft Excel file size is being used to hide data
remains constant in spite of the file containing the
confidential data. The secret for the survival of file size
unchanged despite the addition of encrypted data, is that
confidential data is embedding in the value of the color pallet
of the font format used in the cells, leading to the font color
change slightly.
The main advantage for scathing the Code Message (CM)
upon the Cover Excel File (CEF) is making the brute force
more confusing and has no possible to visualize the hiding
message in normal circumstance, it is somehow rather than
embedding it into either MS Word or PPT while the latter
done sequentially, in this approach: each Full cell can hide a
character with coding process (from 4 bits to 8 bits)
In this study, we have had advantages through applying a
new approach of Text to Excel hiding techniques, likewise
both the conductivity ratio, and the degree of disappearances
are indicated perfectly.
