Abstract: The retinal pattern biometrics varies to every individual and it is one of the most efficient form of identification. Retinal scanners use infrared rays along with non-invasive color retinal cameras and are very effective in getting a retinal image. We differentiate retinas using segmentation of retinal vascular branch. Further Bifurcation and cross over points are used Steganography is the art of hiding information within another file which can be image, video, audio, text etc. After getting the retinal details, steganographic methods are used to transfer this file securely over the internet. Once received at the receiver, it can be used for verification of user authenticity
