Steganography is the method that involves communicating secret data in an appropriate multimedia carrier. Many uncommon carrier formats can be used; digital images are the most standard used in steganography. In this paper hybrid combination of least significant bit as well as RSA algorithms are used for encryption process. Inserting secret data inside cover images needs intensive computations, and thus, designing steganography in hardware speeds up steganography. This work indicates a hardware design of Least Significant Bit (LSB) as well as RSA steganography technique in a Papilio Spartan 3 FPGA board.
