CRYPTOGRAPHY AND STEGANOGRAPHY, METHODS TO HIDE INTELLIGENCE PRODUCTS
Abstract: Intelligence plays a very important role in supporting decision-making. Once intelligence has been collected, it must be sent as quickly as possible to the decision-maker, but prior to transmission, the intelligence product must be encrypted, hidden from view. Well-known and widespread techniques by which intelligence is manipulated for the purpose of encoding/encryption and hiding its existence are cryptography and steganography.
Keywords: intelligence; cryptography; steganography; key; code; encrypted message.
