Today, the security is getting the major attention due to the increased use of internet. As the use of internet is increased, the rate at which the data is exchanged per day is also increased. The data that is exchanged every day may become the victim of hackers. To deal with this problem one of the effective solution is the Steganography. The Steganography is a way to hide secret information behind an innocent cover file, such that the existence of information is not usually recognized. This paper uses the concept of video Steganography, where the data is hidden behind the frames of videos. This paper provides two level of security to the data i.e. Steganography and cryptography. First the data is encrypted using cryptography algorithm, next the encrypted data is embedded into frames of videos. The technique used to embed the data is LSB coding. It is the most common technique, but can hide large amount of data in most simplest and efficient way.
