In order to improve the security and robustness of the Information Steganography Algorithm under strictly controlled environment, a new algorithm of modification-free steganography based on image and big data is introduced in this paper. In the proposed algorithm, a mapping relationship between the hot image entropy and the secret information is constructed and the payload information is expressed by the mapping relation. At the same time, turbo code is introduced in order to improve

Because of its none-modifying on carrier image, the results of experiment show that the proposed algorithm can achieve good performance in robustness analysis, dimension scaling attack, and rotation attack. In particular, in the test of dimension scaling attack and the rotation attack, the rate of data recovering can be over 95%. The proposed algorithm can be very valuable in the covert communication which requires high security and low volume, for example, the key exchange of symmetric encryption system.
