If you ask me Why, I’d ask why not?! RPi is a tiny linux computer with very limited hardware resources. If you’re planning to build a webserver on it, you’ll get to know the odds when you start using it. ¬†Its totally functional as a web server & you can see a bunch of tutorials out in the wild on how to do it. Almost all of it is about turning your RPi into a LAMP setup. RPi can handle it since it has got more juice than your wireless…read more

Embed Secret Messages On Photos Easily

Posted by in Experiments, Technology, Tutorials

The idea of embedding secret messages on images is not new, in fact this has been done many times by many people. Some are so complex that even experts in Steganography¬†won’t be able to decrypt them. I’ve used a simple method to do the same. Data can be written into files in binary mode without modifying the initial contents of the file. This is the basic idea of my implementation. Embedding The Data My implementation is quite simple & can be explained by 3 simple steps. I’ve used Autohotkey¬†for coding…read more
