Due to increase in usage of internet, it has become important to keep the online communication secure and concealed. Many users are there all over the world who shares their views, thoughts and ideas through the use of international network. Many techniques have been developed so far for ensuring the secrecy of transfer of these thoughts and ideas. Few of them are stegnalysis, cryptanalysis and copyright protection more often known as digital watermarking. Sometimes the combination or hybrid of these techniques is used to attain confidential data such as in military, banks etc. One such technology named as crystography which is a hybrid of steganography and cryptography. This paper aims at discussing various steganography algorithms developed till now and their applications in real life that might help researchers in this field by giving guidelines for future scope and work.
