  • Abstract

    There are many research has done a hybridization approach of text message insertion that has been compressed with Lempel-Ziv-Welch (LZW) algorithm and has also been encrypted. The text messages in ciphertext form are inserted into the image file using LSB (Least Significant Bit) method. The results of this study indicate that the value of Peak Signal to Noise Ratio (PSNR) lower than the LSB method of 0.94 times with a ratio of 20.33%, with Kekre's method of 10.04%. To improve the value of PSNR stego image of insertion, in this research is inserted audio samples using 5 bits to reduce the amount of data insertion, so it can get the value of MSE stego image low. Prior to insertion, the text file is compressed with the Lempel-Ziv-Welch (LZW) algorithm and encrypted with the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm. Then, the insertion of compression and encrypted text files is done with the Modified Least Significant Bit (MLSB) algorithm. To performa test reliability of steganography, the image stego image is done by calculating Mean Squared Error (MSE) and Peak Signal to Noise Ratio (PSNR). At extraction process with MLSB algorithm, decryption with AES algorithm and decompression with LZW algorithm. The experimental results show that the MSE values obtained are lower and the proposed PSNR method is better with (α) 1,044 times than the Kaur method, et al. The result of embed text file extraction from the stego image works well resulting in encrypted and uncompressed text files.
