hi

thanks all of you who responded. i really appreciate the caring my
information recieved. thanks for the links. thread closed. i also wanted
to put my 2 cents in :whenever someone's emails someone off-the-list,
basicly just smalltalk, the person who got the email shouldn't send it to
the whole fricking list.
again thanks
see you

i'm looking for a very simple,reliable, small (certainly less
the 1mb),
must-have gui, windows,  stenographic encryption program. i'd
appreciate
any recommendations.

There's a nice list at: http://www.jjtc.com/Steganography/toolmatrix.htm

Also, there is an excellent book out by Dave Cole called "Hiding in Plain 
Sight: Steganography and the Art of Covert Communication" which quickly
lays 
out the theory and also suggests several utilities which I recall
(currently 
don't have the book on hand) fit your requirements.  Also, a portion of
the 
book includes source code to an app that he was writing as part of his,
at 
time of writing, current research so there is some foundation should
anyone 
consider writing something similar.  It is a short book, the theory is
laid 
out so it is easy to follow both making for a quick read.

Although steganography has close links to crypto, they are different.  
Where
crypto hides data behind encryption, stego hides it in plain site.

Good point; however, it should be noted that combined it is a popular
match 
since there are apps that are getting better at detecting the presence of 
hidden data so also encrypting it adds another layer of protection.  Just
to 
mention, stego's technique in transmitting data is COVERT in that it
hides 
the fact that sensitive data is being sent and cryptography's "technique"
is 
OVERT since it is apparent that sensitive data is being sent but turned
into 
unintelligible text.  Then again, maybe when the original poster stated 
"stego encryption program" he was asking for an app that did both, and we 
incorrectly implying that the two were getting confused making all this
is 
moot.
