Problem faced by today’s communicators is not only security but also the speed of communication. This paper provides a mechanism that increases the speed of communication by reducing the size of content; for this data compression method is used and security factor is added by using Steganography. Firstly, the focus has been made on Data Compression and Steganography. Finally, proposed technique has been discussed. In Proposed technique first data is compressed to reduce the size of the data and increase the data transfer rate. Thereafter on compressed data state table operation is applied to improve the security. Then, this is used as the input to the LSB technique of Steganography. At receiver end, firstly the LSB extraction technique is used, thereafter the state table operation in reverse form is applied and finally the original data is obtained. Hence our proposed technique is effective that can reduce data size, increase data transfer rate and provide the security during communication.
