In the End, the thesis was covered an efficient method of construction a secure image hiding approach in digital images. The digital image steganography process has been achieving the improvement of constrained intensity of human visual system (HVS). Image steganography method was utilized image as cover media for hiding secret message. The major principles necessities for a steganography framework are to be untraceable while augmenting the measure of the data is going to embed into spread unique image. The proposed encoding of restricted image based on chaos approach, in which the image was distributed into various sorts then interchange these parts to generate the new form of depiction. The next step was applying discrete wavelet transform, so the facsimile data was prepared to be concealed. The performance measurement has been applied in this approach to find peak signal to noise ratio (PSNR) and mean square error (MSE) between embedded and extracted image. The obtained results indicated that this approach leading to more secure approach comparing to other methods. The archived values of PSNR is in between 38.7447 and 59 depending on the size of the secrete image.
