A Novel Method to Protect Content of Microsoft Word Document Using Cryptography and Steganography

Mohamed Ahmed Mohamed, Obay G. Altrafi, Mohamed O. Ismail, and Mawada O. Elobied
Abstract—Microsoft Word is the most famous and popular word processor in the world nowadays and the last versions of it depend on eXtended Markup Language (XML) by using Open Office XML format (OOXML). Usually MS Word document contain sensitive data, this document may be sending over internet, via email or even stored in cloud. This makes the data in this document vulnerable to many security threats. This paper introduce novel method to protect the data inside MS-word document using cryptography and steganography techniques, via propose two algorithms, one for hiding user’s selected content from the document into an zero dimension image, and the other for retrieving the original plain text. The implemented method gave a good result in hiding the content of the file regard less the type of the content.

Index Terms—MS-Word document, cryptography, steganography, XML fileK, zero dimension image, MS-Word add-on.
