This research paper introduces a novel algorithm can be applied either, in the area of digital watermarking and steganography, separately or together. This amalgamated algorithm, MP_2, is evolved for enhancement of secrecy level of a confidential message communication and imperceptibility of a watermark in the digital steganography and watermarking domain. The research work has employed matrix transformation technique to evolve embedment and encryption algorithm. This algorithm is classified in the reversible algorithm in the area of digital watermarking technique steganography.
