Abstract: Nowadays, computer-based communications are at the threshold of making life easier for everyone in the world; from sharing information, to communicating with each other, to exchanging electronic documents, and to checking bank balances and paying bills. Nonetheless, information security is an essential factor, which must be taken into consideration to ensure secure communications. There are significant interests in security approaches that aim to protect information and digital data, since the growing increase in uses of the internet and multimedia, have raised the interests in image steganography in order to secure and protect them. In this paper, a detailed literature review on a variety of different methods, algorithms, and schemes in image steganography is conducted in order to analyse and investigate them. In addition, this research summarized a comparative literature review for these researches and presented into a table, which involves a research name, broad domain, research methodology, advantages, disadvantages, and the evaluation method.
