The Internet of things (IoT) is one of those emerging technologies, which are
going to rule the world in the next few decades. The IoT environment not only enables
Human to Machine interaction but also fosters Machine to Machine connectivity.
Numerous IoT devices have poor security and insufficient computing power, making them
prime targets for hackers. The IoT environment uses lightweight cryptographic techniques
to address security requirements. Another security method for IoT devices is
steganography. In the contemporary Internet era, the ability to secure private information
is crucial, and steganography offers this capability. Due to its great ability to conceal
sensitive data, video has drawn the attention of numerous academics among all forms of
digital media. The main goal of this work is to examine several methods for fusing video
steganography and cryptography techniques. Additionally, a thorough investigation and
evaluation of a variety of video steganography methods in both compressed and raw
domains are also emphasized. The comprehensive analysis of prior material makes it
easier to have in-depth knowledge while creating approaches that combine cryptography
with steganography.
