Hide secret documents inside audio files - and audio CD tracks

DeepSound is a steganography tool which can conceal confidential data within WAV or FLAC files (and encrypt it, too, for good measure), and even audio CD tracks.

The program includes a simple built-in browser which allows you to locate and choose a suitable carrier file.

Next, you're able to add whatever files you'd like to hide within the carrier.

DeepSound can embed that data, and optionally protect it with 256-bit AES encryption, exporting the results as a modified WAV or FLAC file. This will play as normal, so look to everyone else like a regular audio file, but only yourself (or anyone else who knows the secret) will be able to extract the secret documents.

Better still, if you burn the WAV or FLAC files to an audio CD then the program should still be able to retrieve the hidden documents later.

We say "should", because you have to make sure that your disc burning program doesn't process the audio in any way. In Windows Media Player, for example, we had to click "More burn options" and disable "Apply volume levelling across tracks". You'll similarly need to turn off normalisation elsewhere.

But once our preparations were complete, everything else ran very smoothly. We selected a carrier FLAC file, embedded a PDF in it, and exported it as a WAV. This was burned to an audio CD with our reconfigured Windows Media Player. And if we opened that audio CD track in DeepSound later, and entered our password, we were able to see and extract the hidden file.

There are a few small issues and irritations here; the interface is basic and less than intuitive, for instance. But overall DeepSound works well, and, once you understand the basics, is easy to use. Check the documentation page, for instance, to see the very few steps involved in making all this work.

What's new:

New improved User Interface (GUI)
Blue/Dark color theme
Output directory may be the same as the carrier audio file directory

Verdict:

A basic, but easy-to-use and effective steganography tool

Spektrel Art 1.0.0

Free Full Commercial Software

Spektrel Art is a stand-alone program and Photoshop plugin which transforms digital photos into "magical art that glimmers and gleams with intersecting lines of tapered light".

What does that mean? Essentially it applies a configurable mix of effects, enhancing edges, smoothing backgrounds and emphasizing colours. Take a look at the thumbnail for one example, and the official product page has more.

Spektral Art works much like any similar tool. Open an image, click one of the thumbnails to apply a particular preset, or click a few buttons and drag some sliders to fine-tune the results.

There's surprising scope for variation, too. For example, just switching from the "Light" to "Dark" theme can transform a bright and friendly image into something dark and sinister, at least in some cases (results vary depending on the source image).

Please note, the demo version doesn't allow images to be saved.

SPECIAL OFFER: as we write, the developer is offering Spektral Art for free. The offer expires August 29th. Please note that you must provide your name, address and phone number to receive your free license.
