Correspondence through email has become a very significant way of communication at workplaces. Information of most kinds such as text, video and audio can be shared through email, the most common being text. With confidential data being easily sharable through this method most companies monitor the emails, thus invading the privacy of employees. To avoid secret information from being disclosed it can be encrypted. Encryption hides the data effectively but this makes the data look important and hence prone to attacks to decrypt the information. It also makes it obvious that there is secret information being transferred. The most effective way would be to make the information seem harmless by concealing the information in the email but not encrypting it. We would like the information to pass through the analyzer without being detected. This project aims to achieve this by “encrypting” plain text by replacing suspicious keywords with non-suspicious English words, trying to keep the grammatical syntax of the sentences intact.
