This paper proposes security technique for the confidential data which is the combination of three techniques, first is image compression that is based on wavelet transformation which will compress confidential image and reduce the size of the image, second is cryptography that is based on symmetric key which will encrypt the confidential image, and third is steganography that is based on least significant bit (LSB) which will embedded encrypted information inside a cover image. Therefore the purpose of the proposed technique is the high security and quality of the reconstructed cover image.
