Steganography software [closed]

Do you know some good (better if FOSS and cross-platform) steganography software that runs on GNU/Linux?

"I don't know of a one-size-fits-all application that can perform these operations on audio,video, and image files, but the StegoArchive website contains a massive archive of steganography software, if you don't mind using multiple tools for the job. You can even order a CD containing the software on the website!

For cross-platform, check out their Java section. For GNU/Linux, check out their Unix/FreeBSD/Linux section.

A lot of it is freeware, and open source, so you probably won't need to put any money down to get this job done."

"here's a quite intriguing project:

Hydan can embed messages into an executable without altering its size.

Hydan steganographically conceals a message into an application. It exploits redundancy in the i386 instruction set by defining sets of functionally equivalent instructions.

It then encodes information in machine code by using the appropriate instructions from each set.

Features:

Application filesize remains unchanged
Message is blowfish encrypted with a user-supplied passphrase before being embedded
Encoding rate: 1/110

Hydan is crossplatform (BSD/Linux/Windows) FOSS."
