In this paper, a data hiding scheme has been proposed to efficiently hide the data at the LSBs of a host image. Two operations used in the encryption and decryption processes, transposition and substitution, are performed to disarrange and replace the data stream. First, data are exchanged by the transposition square which is reordered by a sequential of magic squares. The secret data are replaced by matching, encoding and substituting from a constructed table. The hidden data are embedded into the LSBs of the host images. The stego images with embedded data are imperceptible. The needed parameters formed a private key are encrypted and sent to the receiver by the RSA method in the Internet. Moreover, if any one of them is incorrect, it is very difficult to find the correct texts. The averaged error hamming distances are near to 50% of the host image size. These results are the same with those by guessing.
