Information or data is a very important resource. It becomes very essential to secure it. The communication channel
through which we transmit our data does not provide data security and privacy. Hiding message using information hiding
techniques play a vital role. Steganography is one of the methods of secret communication that usually hides the
existence of hidden message. It can be defined as the study of invisible communication that usually deals with the ways of
hiding the existence of the communicated message. The hidden message may be text, image, audio, and video. In this
paper, the authors have selected a JPEG image as cover. A two dimensional elliptic curve is taken as the stego key to find
location in the digital image and a secret message is embedded in it. The approach is to hide the message in such a way
that no suspicion is raised.
