The proposed method of graphical data protection is a combined crypto-steganographic method. It is based on a bit values transformation according to both a certain Boolean function and a specific scheme of correspondence between MSB and LSB. The scheme of correspondence is considered as a secret key. The proposed method should be used for protection of large amounts of secret graphical data.
