Cryptography is the science of using mathematics to encrypt and decrypt data and Steganography is the art and science of hiding communication. A steganographic system thus embeds hidden content in unremarkable cover media so as not to arouse an eavesdropper’s suspicion. The Steganography hides the message so it cannot be seen. In this paper, a new method is proposed to embed data in images. The security is provided through context sensitive rules. Hexagonal Finite Interactive System is taken as a base to choose the Carrier. Experimental results show that the method is very efficient especially when gluing is done by matching the border label so that the tiling is done uniformly.
