StegoWeb is a simple little application that can hide data using steganographic methods. The idea of steganography is to communicate with someone while the very existence of the communication is concealed. Therefore, the act of hiding anything remains a secret even after uploading the hidden data to the website!
How is this possible? StegoWeb does not hide information in the contents of the webpage; instead, it uses a URL shortener service as storage space. However, the process involves entering a password that is used during the creation of the short URL and storing the information. Therefore, the password is also needed to reveal the data; otherwise, the place of the hidden information cannot be found, and, even if it were found somehow, strong cryptography impedes peeking into the hidden data.
Another advantage of StegoWeb is that it can be installed very simply – it can be used simply through a web browser! In order to achieve this, StegoWeb was implemented as a so-called bookmarklet, and, as such, it is loaded from the Web upon each execution. This means that StegoWeb is free software, so its source code can be viewed, modified or relocated to another server by anyone.

AInstallation of the application is very simple: the following bookmarklet links have to be added as bookmarks in the browser.
When the bookmarklets are in place, the following simple steps are required to assign hidden counterparts to the data on the webpage of choice.
The following links point to websites where we have hidden information using StegoWeb.
