Distorted Text Says a Lot
This lead came from the IEEE newsletter, but I thought it was related to a recent HaD post by another author. It turned out that the subject was similar in that it hid messages in ordinary text, but the method was wildly different. Encoded text is hidden by distorting individual glyphs of a known font a certain amount. The amount of distortion reveals the secret data. To the average user, there is nothing suspicious about the text but it can be deciphered with software which knows what to look for. I made a graphic for the article which flipped between unaltered text and the same text which contained a secret message.
