Camouflage


Camouflage is an interesting program in that it allows you to hide files by first scrambling them and then attaching them to a file of your choice. This "camouflaged" file then looks and behaves like a normal file. It can be stored, used, or e-mailed without drawing attention.

With Camouflage you can create a picture file that looks and behaves exactly like any other picture file but contains hidden encrypted files, or you can hide a file inside a Word document that would not attract attention if discovered.

Camouflage allows for additional security by providing a password function for the file. This password will be required when extracting the files within. You can even camouflage files within camouflaged files.

One point to note is that the hidden file can be detected by examining the raw file data. Examining the data in this way will reveal that a hidden file has been added after the normal carrier data, even though the data will appear as gibberish because the data is encrypted. While not the most secure form of steganography, its ability to use inconspicuous files makes it an effective tool.
