Abstract:-  The use of internet increases for communication and for other more aspects. There are number of Cryptography scheme that used to increase security where we discuss about the confidential information transfer. As unauthorized access & data loss increases so, in this work we proposed a hybrid approach to hide secret data in other file that it can’t be lost or accessed by unauthorized user. This hybrid technique can be proposed by using advance hill cipher and DES to enhance the security which can be measured by calculating PSNR & MSE values. This technique is a new technique for hiding text data behind the image file and increase the security.
