    Looking for a secret code generator and reader

    I am looking for a script which can generate a secret code or image and then when uploaded will read the text hidden in the image or code.

    Example : It will generator a barcode and when uploaded, it reveals the text.

    Do you know any such script available online (free or paid any will do).

    This is a nasty niche, for a few reasons:
    • Reading barcodes is surprisingly technically difficult
    • Last I knew, there were some ongoing legal concerns surround bar code fonts
    • Most of the people who want to help you read barcodes want to sell you physical bar code scanners
    • Most of the developers in this space are B2B, meaning they expect to be paid quite well for their code

    Those are software development kits to build scripts with.

    Search for some Steganography script. Steganography is an encryption technique that encrypts a message onto an image or an audio file. This technique uses the bits in multimedia files, kept for future use or have least significance, to store the information. Thus, the file looks normal when you view it through the multimedia viewer, i.e. if you open an image file in an image viewer it will appear to be normal. But the decryption algorithm applied to it will reveal the secret information stored onto the image file.

    So, I think some Steganography kit will help you. Search for that.
