Abstract: The two most aspects of any image based steganographic system are the quality of the stego-image & the capacity of the cover image. A lossless data hiding scheme is presented based on quantized coefficients of discrete wavelet transform (DWT) in the frequency domain to embed secret message. Using the quantized DWT based method, we embed secret data into the successive zero coefficients of the medium-high frequency components in each reconstructed block for 3- level 2-D DWT of cover image. The procedures of the proposed system mainly include embedding & extracting. The original image can be recovered losslessly when the secret data had been extracted from stego-image.
