Steganography is the technique that hides secret messages in seemingly inoccuous data. Steganalysis is the technique that is used to discover the use of steganography. Usuallyit is difficult to extract the exact hidden message because itis usually encrypted. Though often it is enough to merely uncover the use of steganography to reveal important information.In this report we discuss some common methods for steganography in images, as well as some methods of analysis,both general and targeted towards specific methods. We test how well the methods fare against each other and what one should consider when making use of steganography. According to our results, many steganographic methods need targeted analysis attacks to be discovered. Our advice is to avoid using the full potential capacity when embeddingdata. The hidden data should also be distributed randomly in the cover file.
