AbstractWith the development of means of communication, computer science and information exchange via electronic information networks an urgent need emerged to find ways to save exchanged information. Encryption had a prominent role in this area. However, with the development of intrusion hackers become able to access to information and change it. This showed the need to adopt more sophisticated technology and more confidentiality in order to preserve the information. So, it become famous to use the system of coverage in which the sent the information being invisible to anyone, through hiding it inside the sent media, such as audio, image, text, and video.
This paper aims to apply the idea to hide image message, using the least significant bit algorithm inside an image and encrypt it in a new way for encryption using a genetic algorithm. For the purpose of increasing security of the access of the letter it is being encrypted to hide the message before using the genetic algorithm to generate random numbers employed in the process of concealment, for the highest extent of randomness. This in turn increases the strength of encryption and concealment. The study has been able to achieve this by adopting the recommended approach in such cases
