Data Privacy System Using Steganography and Cryptography

Data privacy is being breached occasionally whether in storage or in transmission. This is due to the spate of attack occasioned by the movement of data and information on an insecure internet. This study aimed to design a system that would be used by both sender and receiver of a secret message. The system used the combination of Steganography (MSB) and Cryptography (RSA) approaches to ensure data privacy protection. The system generates two keys: public and private keys, for the sender and receiver to encrypt and decrypt the message respectively. The steganography method used does not affect the size of cover image. The software was designed using python programming language in PyCharmIDE. The designed system enhanced the security and privacy of data. The results of this study reveal the effectiveness of combination of steganography and cryptography over the use of either cryptography or steganography and other existing systems.

Development of an Electronic Secure Students' Industrial Works Experience Scheme Placement System

This research developed a secured student industrial work experience scheme (SIWES) placement system to take care of the security challenges of the existing automated systems. There are attempts by researchers to ameliorate the challenges associated with the scheme by developing various systems. However, the developed systems are subjected to security vulnerabilities. This research, in an attempt to avert the security challenges associated with the existing automated systems, designed a new scheme which includes security architectures in the kernel and application layers. This new system was able to achieve two important tasks; first, the system automation and second, the inclusion of security architectures to cubs the application’s vulnerabilities. The present process involves students manually seeking placement to undergo the program, and due to this, students end up applying at organizations that are not relevant to what they are studying. Despite the fact there are no much existing systems that digitally caters for this component of the scheme, the available existing systems are subjected to security vulnerability. Therefore, leveraging on secure web application technologies using Unified Modelling Languages for design, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP for its implementation and user privilege and password hash to ensure its security, this project developed a secure solution to this pertinent challenge. The system is tested using unit testing component of each design, integration testing and general system testing. The implementation shows the system works according to the design, by ensuring all units of the development perform necessary functions of data storage, data retrieval, error alerting, and interface/server appropriate communication. In addition, the security architecture, design and implementation of the system’s design are better than the existing ones.

Development of Secure Electronic Cybercrime Cases Database System for the Judiciary

By Olawale Surajudeen Adebayo Joshua Bulus Micah Ganiyu Shefiu Olusegun Ishaq O. Alabi Lateefah Abdulazeez

The recent covid-19 pandemic created a barrier to every activity that needed physical interaction and involvement, especially in the judiciary. Careful research of some courts in Nigeria shown that case records are still been manually processed and stored and some courts operate a semi-digital and semi-manual processing pattern, which also has its own shortcoming of preprocessing manual records and converting them into digital records and physical presence is required to access court records. This research develops a secure electronic Cybercrime Cases Database System (eCCDBS), for prosecuted cybercrime in the judicial service in Nigeria. The system will provide an efficient method for collecting, retrieving, preserving, and management of court case records. The Rapid Application Development (RAD) methodology is used for the system development, because of its speed and time friendliness and can be easily restructured to meet the client’s requirement at any point in time during the development life span. RAD can also present a prototype of the final system software to the client. Access control mechanism and secure password hashing were used to ensure the security of the system. The system was implemented and evaluated through deployment and found to have functioned according to the specification. The application subunits of records’ creation, submission, modification, deletion, retrieval, and storage functioned effectively. Hence this system provides a secure online repository specifically for cybercrime case records that have elements of confidentiality, integrity and availability.
