Abstract: Steganography refers to the hiding of secret messages in communications over a public channel so that an eavesdropper (who listens to the communications) cannot even tell that a secret message is being sent. Early works has been done on single file media. Which is sometime easy to analyze and find out the secret message . In the current work we are going to propose the multiple fingerprint images to store the secret message. We are also going to choose the modified haar wavelet transformation technique to insert the data. Image sequence is connected as random manner and every image has a tag for another image In this work we are inserting the data in fingerprint image for security and reliability purpose. As in this method the message is embedded in the picture in a random manner depending on the free spaces in the picture and also the message is scrambled with image while embedding to make the retrieval of the message by an unknown user tough.
