The rapid development of the transfer of data via internet made it easier to send the correct information and quicker to the destination. Today's massive demand of web applications needs the information to be communicated in a secure manner. The transmission of information in a public communication system isn't secure because of interception and improper manipulation by an eavesdropper. So for this problem, the solution is Steganography, which means the art of hiding information in ways that avert the revealing of hiding messages. Secure video steganography is a difficult task of sending the embedded data to the receiver without being detected. This paper presents a steganographic model which is based on random pattern based sequential bit encoding. The proposed model has been designed to enhance the security level. The video embedding creates the higher level of security for the embedded data. Here the encrypted secret image is embedded into the blocks of a cover video file which is selected using autocorrelation function which measures the similarity between the two images. The embedding is done on the basis of random selection of the pixels in the blocks of cover video. The performance parameters that are used to obtain results are taken in the form of chi-square histogram difference measurements. The proposed model increases the security by using random pattern embedding.
