Need for digital video communication is increasing day by day. In the very near future itself, video may become the dominant type of traffic over the Internet. A Secure scheme of digital video communication is presented in this paper using a combination of both cryptography and steganography. Multiple encryptions at the transmitter side followed by data hiding and corresponding decryptions and the data retrieval at the receiver side is proposed here for preserving security. Triple-AES encryption standard is used here for doing encryption. H.264/ Advanced Video Coding (AVC) standard being one of the most commonly used formats for the distribution of video content; it has been selected for the transmission. At the receiver side, embedded data can be extracted both from the encrypted and decrypted version of the digital video. This combinational system will satisfy security, file size preservation and format compliance of the video data in transmission over an open channel.
