The proposed system presents a novel approach of building a secure data hiding technique of Steganography using Integer W avele t Transform along with Genetic A lgorithm. The pr ominent focus of the proposed work is to develop R esistant S ecure - analysis proof design with highest imperceptibi lity. Optimal Pixel Adjustment P rocess is also adopted to minimize the difference error between the input cover image and the embedded - image an d in order to maximize the hiding capacity with low distortions respectively. The analysis is done for mapping function, P eak S ignal to N oise R atio , image histogram, and parameter s of RS analysis. The implementation results highlights that the proposed sec urity measure basically gives better and optimal results in comparison to prior research wor k conducted using wavelets and Genetic A lgorithm
