Due: First part due Monday April 13th by 11:59pm
Second part due Tuesday April 21 at the beginning of class.
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 https://steg.drupalgardens.com/stegdownload and download the version of Steg for your system (Windows/Mac/Linux supported)
Use three separate image files as carrier files. Use Comp199=001 as the passcode.
Put these three files into a folder, zip the entire folder into a single zip file and submit it via email. (your zip file needs to be no more than 100 mb)
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 which includes the following sections
Submit the paper in class on Tuesday April 21.
