First read this article which explains a little more about steganography in plain English.
Rather than the very fancy and hard to use tool that I demonstrated in class. Lets use a simpler but easier to use version
Go to http://www.silenteye.org/ and download the version of SilentEye for your system (Windows/Mac/Linux supported)
Use three separate image files as carrier files. Use Comp199 as the passcode.
1) put your name in it.
2) put a file into it.
3) Put your name into the third file along with your major and encrypt it.
Put these three files into a folder, zip the entire folder into a single zip file and submit it on moodle.
I'll randomize the files and hand them back to different students. You will find the data stored in the files and report on it. You'll write a short paper (not one of our edited ones) which includes the following sections
Submit the paper in class on the 11th of November . 13th of November.
