Abstract: This paper compares an efficiency of two approaches of multi-secret steganography in lightweight systems: interlacing and multi-level. The study was conducted for two and three secrets with use of F5 algorithm for both approaches. The embedding times were measured with and without I/O operations. At the end the application of these techniques in lightweight solutions is discussed.

Keywords: steganography; internet of things; IoT; efficiency; interlacing; multi-level steganography; image steganography.
