This paper proposes a secure image steganography technique to hide a secret image using the key. The secret image itself is not hidden, instead a key is generated and the key is hidden in the cover image. Using the key the secret image can be extracted. Integer Wavelet Transform (IWT) is used to hide the key. So it is very secure and robust because no one can realize the hidden information and it cannot be lost due to noise or any signal processing operations. Experimental results show very good Peak Signal to Noise Ratio (PSNR), which is a measure of security. In this technique the secret information is hidden in the middle bit-planes of the integer wavelet coefficients in high frequency sub-bands.
