Throughout history man had looked for ways to transmit messages securely, in ancient Greece messages were written on the shaved head of a messenger.
After the hair grew back the messenger was sent to the intended recipient of the message and after a severe haircut, the message was revealed.
This type of message transmission is called "steganography".
This method suffers from some fundamental weakness obviously if the messenger was searched the message could be revealed. These weaknesses led to the creation of "cryptography", where the message is encrypted with a cipher before being released.
Thanks to Simon Singh's Book, the cracking codebook for the above information.
