Due to the unprecedented growth of network bandwidth, the Internet has become a quite popular channel for transmitting various data, such as, audio, video, image and text, in digital form. In this paper, we present a novel steganographic method that can be used to increase reliability of transmitted secret data in network. The core concept of proposed method is the use of cryptography with steganography technique. Lots of contents of the secret data are represented by cover image, which enhance invisibility and robustness. A mass of experiments demonstrate that our method has high hiding capacity, good imperceptibility, and certain robustness to some common attacks. These advantages assure the effectiveness of network transmission.
